Little Meat Pies (Recipe)

Ok, hear me out for a second. I know I’m not usually a source of amazing cooking tips (in fact, Kraft Dinner sometimes throws me for a loop), but this is one of my all-time favourite recipes. Seriously, these things are amazing and really easy to make.

Not exactly sure where this recipe came from — I’ve been told it’s a modified version of an old recipe for diabetic-friendly meat pie. I did a bit of searching on the internet and found similar recipes (like this one and this one) that call for the raw meat to be mixed with the other ingredients, but that’s not what’s happening here; brown that beef first for some juicy, crispy goodness. Trust me.
