Here’s some info from her on making the meat pies:
Name: Ugo O.
Recipe Made: Meat Pies
Back Story: “So finally I get around to sending you these pictures. Lol. Anyway, these are the meat pies I made. I am so proud of myself. The first time I attempted to make meat pies, I couldn’t get the dough right. It just kept falling apart. My husband even begged me to stop trying cos I was so miserable from messing them up. lol .
He just didn’t want me beating myself up for something he figured I didn’t have to know how to make. Anyway, I kept trying and finally i have it where I like it. I used a food processor for the dough which makes it so easy and quick to make meat pies.”
Ugo, I love that you didn’t give up and kept trying! Like I said, practice makes perfect! That dough looks good, not flaky and it’s the right thickness too. That filling? I love that it’s more meat than potatoes, which is one of the things I look for in meat pies. The food processor? Hey, I’m all for whatever works! Awesome job lady!
Thanks to Ugo for sharing her photos! I’m sure it didn’t take long for it to get devoured ;)
