Individual Sweet Potato and Pork Pies

I love making pies. My husband, for my birthday, gave me mini pie plates and I am having so much fun baking with them! Today, I decided to make a meat and potatoes pie. I had ground pork (on sale!) and a sweet potato, that I really needed to use. Well, why not? So, I mixed a little of this and a little of that and I came up with Sweet Potato Pork Pies. I have a few variations of this dish, that I want to try in the future. I hope you like this one!

Sweet Potato and Pork Pie

Ingredients:

A Portion of Pastry Dough

1 cup of ground pork

1/2 cup of sweet potato, diced small

1/2 cup of onions, diced small

2 strips of bacon, diced small

1 teaspoon of brown sugar

Fresh Parsley, chopped

1/2 teaspoon of dried rosemary

black pepper (to taste)

Directions:

  1. Saute onions and bacon until onions start to brown.
  2. Add sweet potatoes and brown sugar and cook for and addition 2 minutes
  3. Remove from heat and combine with ground pork, parsley, rosemary and black pepper
  4. Roll out dough and cover the bottom of a mini pie plate
  5. Spoon in pork mixture and cover with another portion of rolled out dough
  6. Seal edges and crimp (with fingers or a fork)
  7. Cut vents into the top and spray top with cooking spray.
  8. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes
  9. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing pie from pie plate.

If you want the top more browned, let it sit under the broiler for a minute
