I created this recipe after my favorite little food place closed down a few years ago.  They had the best meat pies.  A few days of the week they would have beef pies and the other few days they would have turkey pies.  My favorite were the beef ones. The owner made them from scratch and you could tell, because the crust was so incredibly flaky and the filling was amazing.  So, this is my quick version.  Someday, I would like to make them from scratch, using homemade pie crust, but for now, I use store-bought.  Instead of making two individual pies, I make one large pie and cut it in half when it is done.  I usually have a little extra veggies, so I just eat those on the side.  Yummy! 
Quick Meat Pies For Two
From: Jenn -

1/2 Lb. ground beef
1/4 onion, finely chopped
garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt and pepper
1 russet potato, peeled & diced
1-2 carrots, peeled & chopped
1/3 c. frozen peas
1 pkg. Pillsbury® pie crust (One box has two crusts, 
      but we only need one crust)
1 pkg. brown gravy mix, make according to pkg. directions

Boil the diced potatoes and chopped carrots until tender.  Just before they are done, add the frozen peas.  Meanwhile, brown ground beef; add onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.   Drain veggies.  Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Unroll one package of pie crust onto cookie sheet.  Cover half of the pie crust with meat, veggies and top with a little prepared gravy.  Fold over dough and seal edges with a fork.  Poke a few holes on top for ventilation.  Bake according to package directions until nice and brown.  Serve with more gravy. Serves 2.         


  1. so we finally took a look at this cute blogspot. Bob is making a roasted chicken for dinner tonight. I'm thinking I'll make a chicken pot pie with the leftovers tomorrow night and use your recipe.
    I'll let you know how it turns out.
