Cajun Trinity Meat Pies



Louisiana is famous for savory meat pies and celebrates them every year in Natchitoches. We season our baked pies with our Taste the Seasons Cajun Trinity mix. These meat pies are top favorites for tailgating, entertaining, or for your kids’ school lunches or after school snacks.


Ingredients

1/2 pound lean ground beef

1/2 pound ground pork

1 package Taste the Seasons Cajun Trinity mix

2 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup beef broth

1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated ready-to-bake pie crusts, room temperature

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon water

Directions

In a large skillet, brown ground beef and pork, breaking meat into small pieces. Drain fat. Stir in Cajun Trinity mix, flour and salt. Add beef broth and bring the mixture to a boil; stir until thickened. Remove from heat and cool.

Roll out pie crusts onto a floured surface. Cut ten 4-inch rounds. Gather scraps and knead together; roll flat and cut four more rounds. Place a heaping tablespoon of the meat mixture onto one half of the dough circles. Fold the other side over the meat and crimp the edges together with a fork. Place onto a lightly-greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water; brush tops of pies. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
