Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 lb Only Alberta Beef ground beef or pork
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 boiled or baked potato, diced
  • canola or olive oil, for cooking
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • pastry for a double crust pie
  • 1 egg, beaten

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 350˚F. In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, heat a drizzle of oil and sauté the onion and celery for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Add the ground meat, garlic, parsley, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Add a half cup of water and simmer for half an hour. Stir in the potato.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out half the pastry into a 10-inch circle and line a pie plate. Fill with the meat mixture, roll out the remaining pastry and lay it overtop. Trim and crimp the edges, and cut a few slits in the top to help the steam escape. Brush the pie with beaten egg. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until golden.
