Meat Pie

This is something I have heard many people talk about, but have never made it.  So I finally snagged a friends recipe and made them.  When you hear pie, you think of the fruit filled, chocolaty silk, creamy meringue, dessert kind.  Or if you are really into numbers, you think of the mathematical term.  But in this case, it is the main dish.

Meat Pie
1 lbs hamburger
1 green pepper ~ chopped
1 red pepper ~ chopped
1 medium onion ~ chopped
2 stalks of celery ~ chopped
1 egg
1/4 cup water
Creole seasoning to taste
Garlic salt to taste
2 refrigerated pie crust {you can also make your own. for me it all depends on time that day.}

Brown hamburger & drain grease.  Before hamburger is fully done, add in green pepper, red pepper, onion & celery till vegetables are tender.  Once grease is drained, add seasonings into mixture.  Roll out  pie crusts onto cookie sheets lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.  

Divide the meat mixture into two.  Spoon each meat mixture into a pie crust, keeping it all on one side. Once spread evenly on one side, fold other half of crust over and "pinch" crust edges together. When it is folded it will look like a calzone. Whisk egg and water together and brush over tops of pies. Cut 2 slits in top of each pie.

Bake meat pie at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

{*You can make smaller ones and use them as appetizers or a little side dish to something else.}
