We Must Have Pork Pie For The Holidays

My mother and grandmother used to make Pork Pie when I was a child and they made them often – for every holiday.  Once we got married my husband kept working on a recipe until he finally perfected what our family loves.  It is not the recipe my mom and meme made – it is different but awesome.  And he never makes one because everyone always wants one.

Pork Pie 5

Ingredients:

2 Pounds ground pork

1 Pound ground hamburg

1 Quart Chicken broth

Salt

Pepper

Ground Sage

Ground Cloves

3 Pounds of potatoes

Stick of butter

1 Cup Milk

Premade Crust (or make your own)

 

Pork Pie

Simmer pork and hamburg in chicken broth in a large pot until cooked. Add seasonings of salt, pepper, ground sage and ground cloves to taste.

Peel potatoes and cut into small slices. Boil until soft so they can be poked with a fork. Drain potatoes. Mash potatoes and add in butter, milk, salt and pepper to taste.

Pork Pie 3

Drain meat. Scoop mashed potatoes into the meat and mix as you go. It may require additional seasonings.

Scoop into pie crust and cover with a pie crust.

Pork Pie 4

Bake at 350 degrees until crust is brown (60-80 minutes)

 

(and yes those are two separate pies – one in a glass pie dish and one in a stoneware pie dish)
