Philly Cheese Steak Pies

Cooked up some minute steaks and chopped up the meat, then I put cut up red and yellow bell peppers and red onion in the pan the meat was in and cooked until just tender. Next I cut out the circles for the top and bottom crusts out of sandwich bread and buttered the outside of each piece.
In each pie I piled in meat, peppers, onion, and mozzarella cheese. They cooked about seven minutes I think. You could use whatever you have on hand. I am sure you could use any bell peppers, and some would say you should use cheese wiz or some other kind of cheese, but like I said I used what I had in the house.

Toasted Raviolis

Toasted Raviolis

my own pasta recipe. They will be 4x4" Large I know. Used the bottom crust cutter for the base and tops. But hey they're good and who wants to get up anyways for seconds.

Once the dough is rolled out, pieces are cut. Set them aside.

I made the filling using cooked Hot Italian sausage, cooled and set aside.

Basil, Parmesan cheese, mixed in with Mozzarella cheese.
Set it aside.

In a medium sized bowl I had some seasoned up bread crumbs. Kosher salt, Paprika, Parmesan cheese, fresh ground pepper.

In another bowl whip up 4 large eggs.

Preheat the pie maker

Take the bottom piece and brush on the whipped eggs. Add the filling and cheese. Place the tops on and seal them up good.

Dip them in the egg mix, then the seasoned bread crumbs. Place them in the pie maker.
It will take about 15-20 minutes to get a nice golden color top and bottom on them. They will puff up just a bit while cooking.

I made about a dozen (Don't hold me to that, wasn't paying attention to the count, impossible to do with them getting grabbed up and eaten)

The Swiss Chard 4 cheese tart I made on the weekend could be adjusted to be similar to these. I'm going to try it using the same pastry I used for the tart yesterday. Not today, but next weekend.

These recipes look amazing! What kind of pie maker are you using? The only pie maker I've ever used was cast iron that you put in the campfire!

Savory Mini Pies - Tips, Ideas and Recipes Today was the first chance I've had to try this beauty out. I made 2 separate crusts. Butter puff for the top. And a regular pie crust for the bottoms. They took about 15 minutes to cook. Made a Chicken pot pie, and a Chile pot pie's loaded up with cheese. The portion was a bit much for me. Couldn't finish one. Between the filling and crusts, they were rich tasting, a great combination of doughs. Very filling. The pie maker was a breeze to use. Simple clean up. Cooked evenly. The only thing I wish It had come with is something non abrasive to lift the cooked pies out with. When they were finished cooking they were heavy. These are not the light banquet frozen pies. When pressing the dough shell into it. I found that dipping the cutters into flour helped it from sticking to the dough. Other then those minor things. It's a great versatile product. Munky.
