French Meat Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by quotFoodThe Way To

My Mom makes this. Usually it is during the holiday season or Easter that you will see this appear, although I have made it just because I am craving it! You can make your own pie crust if you wish. Some of use eat this with ketchup on top, but serve with what you like.

great recipe! I made it last night and there is only 1 piece left! The only difference I made was to chop the potato and put it in raw rather than cook and mash it. I will try it mashed another time. We ate it with Ketchup...yum!
