Meat Hand Pies

Photo from Woman's Day Magazine

2 Tblsp olive oil
1 small onion finely chopped
1 small to medium potato cut into 1/4 inch dice
1/2 c frozen peas
1 to 2 carrots cut into very small dice, or shredded
1 1/2 c cooked chicken, turkey, beef or pork, shredded
2 refrigerated pie crusts
1 egg beaten

heat oven to 400
line baking sheet with parchment, or use baking stone
heat oil in skillet and cook onion until tender
add salt and pepper to taste
add potato and carrots and cook until tender
remove from heat and add peas and meat
unroll pie crust and cut each into 4 triangles
divide meat mixture onto each triangle towards one side
fold crust over mixture and use fork tines to press and seal
transfer to baking sheet
brush each with egg
bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown

These can be made ahead then flash frozen and kept in freezer for up to 2 months.  Place on parchment lined baking sheet and place in freezer until firm, then place in freezer bag for storage.  Bake frozen at 375 for 30 -45 minutes.  (this idea from Woman's Day magazine)

Until Next Time.....
