These Meat Pies Are Magical!

There are times when we miss my grandmother so much that it gives the atmosphere a melancholic feel that wouldn’t go away even until after the reunion. We usually don’t mean to, but whenever there’s a recipe that didn’t go as planned, we would always remember grandma. She was so meticulous when it came to the kitchen. She always wanted everything to be perfect because she wanted everyone to enjoy the food. I remember her scolding even my grandfather when he was being a nuisance in the kitchen. My grandfather loved eating a few pieces of what’s been cooked and grandma hated that.

One time, Aunt Beth and one of my cousins were the ones designated to cook dinner. We were having meat pies that night because everyone wanted something light yet savory. The voting resulted to having meat pies.

My cousin, who was a bit tired that day (she came straight from work), made a mistake of putting sugar in the meat instead of salt. In the end, it tasted like one of those meat buns you could buy in Chinese restaurants. Aunt Beth didn’t get furious at her, but she told us that if she was grandma, my cousins ears would have been torn off and she would have been banned in the kitchen.

Hi! Is the meat and all the vegetables raw when you stuff your meat pies? It all cooks while baking? This makes 4 pies? It looks delicious. I’ve never cooked rutabaga before… would this work with just potatoes? What type of flavor does rutabaga add? Thank you!

These sound like pasties. Same question as Marie – are the meat and vegetables raw or cooked? Also, can these be made ahead and frozen? If so, should they be defrosted then reheated or reheated from frozen? Thanks!!
