- 2 pastry shells - I use the roll out kind you find near the eggs in the grocery store
- 2 eggs
- 1 lb of ground beef - I like the lean kind but any kind will do
- 1/4 sweet onion
- 3 potatoes
- 4 carrots
- 1 tablespoon rosemary
- 1/2 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- Olive oil to drizzle over the shells when you put them in the oven
I preheated the oven to 425f. I then rolled out the shells on the cookie tray so I could fill them easily. I probably should have greased the bottom of the cookie tray with some of the olive oil but I didn't.
I chopped up the carrots (peeled and chopped small), onion, and potatoes (just chopped, not peeled). I then added the two eggs, spices, and ground beef, mixing it all together the best I could in the bowl. It doesn't have to be perfect but it does need to be mixed.
I then took the filling, and put half inside each pastry shell, folding the pastry shells over. Again, doesn't have to be perfect. I drizzled olive oil on top and put these in the oven for 45 minutes.
This should be enough food for probably 6 people. Each pastry shell should feed three. I will be eating this for the rest of the week. It's really quite good and I think I might make it at Pennsic (with smaller portions!). It is a modern recipe - I made it up this evening- but nothing in it screams modern either. Well, maybe the ground beef but if you wanted to do this for a medieval type dinner, you could use small pieces of steak instead.
