This recipe of muffin tin mini shepherd’s pot pies is an insanely delicious spin on the classic dish with an updated twist. This frugal way to use leftovers and turn them into a whole completely different meal that your family may not even recognize them.
Do you have leftover mashed potatoes and side dish of steamed vegetables from the dinner the night before ? Quickly mix up a batch of homemade dough as you are frying up some seasoned hamburger. Sometimes I will actually use a fifty/fifty mix of hamburger and pork sausage for the fried meat to give it enhanced flavor and texture.
Yes, the recipe calls for pre made store bought dough but the amazing thing about us homesteaders, we try to go back to the basics of homemade cooking. I am going to share with you my favorite homemade butter flaky pie dough recipe that I constantly go back to time and time again……(Click Here). P.S – You will want to print out or bookmark on your computer but this recipe is a 5 star winner if you like a flaky almost fall apart buttery baked crust.
Using a muffin tin with individual spaces actually cuts down the baking time for those busy nights that there never seems to be enough time.
My friend, Robin and her family love this recipe but they add shredded Pepper Jack cheese before the mashed potatoes are added on top ! I may even try to muffin tin mini Chicken pot pies with swirled mashed potatoes on top.
I can almost smell the savory scent coming from the oven.
