WE ALL LOVED THIS. Thanks for a simple and tasty recipe. I might make individual ones this year.
So easy to make, cute and great comfort food. I took some of the egg wash and put green food coloring in for the stem. =) Thanks!
We really enjoyed this fun and delicious dinner before taking the kids out trick-or-treating. It was great fun, and really yummy!
This was awesome! Had a Halloween mini get-together and this was a big hit - tasted great, was easy to do and looked great too!
Hi, I made this for lunch for a couple of friends and their children today.. The kids loved it. I subsituted ground turkey....only because both my husband and I are not permitted to eat red meat often so we save it for steak. Actually no one has ever noticed it was ground turkey. Thanks for the recipe. I bet it would work on other holiday's too (a red heart for vallentines day for example). Leanne
I made and posted the pic of this...Everyone LOVED IT! It was very good. Very good and easy recipe for before going trick or treating!!!!My 4-year-old told all his friends about it!
Oh my goodness, this is just wonderful and I'm an Aussie meat pie lover! I basically cooked as written using premium grade mince (less fat, ground beef). I did make one small addition and that was to include 2 tablespoons of Australian gravox and about 1/2 cup water to the meat mixture. Gravox is a gravy mix which thickens as simmered. I did cut back slightly on the cheese and only added about a cup to the meat mixture. I used a short crust pie base and topped with puff pastry. I used cookie cutters to cut out the face shapes. Shooting stars for eyes and a star for a nose and a large heart for a mouth. I do recommend lifting the cuttings off before placing the pastry on the pie, otherwise they melt into the mince. This would be excellent with the addition of some veggies whether frozen or fresh, that is if you wanted to add veggies for your kids. What a wonderful novelty for kids. Mine watched this cooking through the glass door of the oven and couldn't wait until it was cooked, cut up and sitting on their plates. My hubby Dave would eat a meat pie at least twice a week and announced that this is the nicest pie he has ever eaten. The biggest bonus to this fabulous recipe was that my girls thoroughly enjoyed helping me cook this. Painting the pastry was so much fun. Will be making these to freeze. Heading over to the Aussie/Kiwi forum now to promote this recipe!
MMMMMMM!!! this sounds so good. going to try this in the next to days, Ginny
