Quick and easy meat pies!

This is Amy coming at you with this week's pie. My husband and I both work full time and go to school (we are crazy) so as a result I love a quick and easy dinner recipe and in my search for savory pie recipes I came across this one

However the only thing we took from that recipe was the idea of using rolled out biscuit dough as the crust. That was one of the things that made this recipe so quick and easy. We used these: 


Rolled out 

We sauteed onions and garlic and added in around 2 pounds of ground turkey (you can substitute any meat you like...a breakfast version with sausage would be yummy!

Season to taste. We used salt, pepper and some sage. Cook until your meat is cooked completely and cool slightly before moving on to the next step. You could also put this mixture in the fridge and finish the recipt the next day for a quick dinner. 

Spoon several teaspoons into the centre of the rolled out biscuits and fold them in half. Pinch the edges shut with a fork, cut several times to vent and brush with a mixture of 1 beaten egg and 1 tbsp milk.  
Bake in a 350 degree oven until golden brown (ours took about 15 minutes but keep a close eye on them. Since the filling is completely cooked before you put them in the oven you are really just cooking the biscuit. This was an easy, yummy dinner that you could adapt to fit your own family. Enjoy!
