Younger son is coming in for a visit next week, and he asked for meat pies. So, today we got together to put together a couple of batches and freeze them until it's time to heat up the frying oil.
Meat pies are a staple in Natchitoches and many recipes abound. Belle has about the best recipe I've ever tried, and you can find it in the blog archive. A recipe will make about 18 meat pies, depending on how big you cut the crust. Belle uses a coffee-cup saucer, and today we made 38 pies.
Meat pies are traditionally served with dirty rice, which is also in the archives. Make a nice tossed salad and maybe a cold beer, and you have supper.
