This question is always on my mind! Every morning, I think “what should I make for dinner?”  Then I ask my husband, “what do you want for dinner?” and I get no help there.  So then I rummage through my recipe book or website to see what pops out at me.  Yesterday I rummaged through my facebook food pics and thought “ah ha!”  I saw my meat pie pictures.  I like this recipe because it’s simple, few ingredients, and I can clean up while the pies are cooking!  So I took a short cut and bought the dough at Trader Joe’s, they’re ready made pizza dough in a bag works pretty well for this recipe.

Then my little teeny person that hangs around my kitchen saw what I was doing and insisted that she much help…of course I had to let her.  She LOVES to roll out the dough, and she’s getting pretty good at it, if I might add.

She finished rolling out the dough, and then I spread out the meat on each flat pie and threw them in the oven. I did clean up time, while my little helper played with the pumpkins.  20 minutes later, my meat pies were done, and I add a side of Greek yogurt to go with them.  They were so satisfying and pretty healthy If I may say so myself. If you use 1 bag of Trader Joe’s dough, cut it into 10 rolls, and 1lb of ground beef, each pie averages about 180-200 calories, not bad for a filling pie!
