"One of my family's favorite comfort foods is the lowly meat pie. Lowly? It's actually full of flavor and, if made right, looks delicious as well."

green bell pepper, chopped
celery, finely diced
carrot, finely chopped
baking potato, peeled and finely chopped
dried thyme leaves
chopped fresh parsley
salt-free seasoning blend to taste
salt and pepper to taste
beef bouillon cubes
shredded mild Cheddar cheese
frozen puff pastry, thawed
I doubled this recipe for about 20 people and it was a huge hit. A few notes:
Pillsbury brand puff pastry (the only kind available in my local grocery store) only has 2 sheets per box and does NOT fit a 9x13 pan. I had to do a mid-cooking run to buy another package. Plan accordingly!
I added some ketchup and red wine to the meat and substituted dried parsley for fresh.
Will definitely make again!
This was very good! I didn't have the salt-free seasoning blend, so I omitted it. I also used lean beef and pork, and reduced-fat cheese. I was surprised that the pastry sheets that I bought did not fit a 9 x 13 pan. They were too short, and I had to cut the sides and add them to the end of the sheets to make them longer. I also had to roll the dough a bit to get it to go up the sides of the pan. Regardless of this, however, the recipe was tasty!
We made a slightly modified version. My picky father loved this. He usually eats sparingly, but this he had 3 servings of LOL. My son and I loved it too.
My fiance had been asking for a meat pie for dinner for a couple weeks, so I finally decided on this one. I read the reviews before I made it for suggestions and that really helped. The puff pastry's do not fit in a 9x13 pan. So I bought 4 pastry's and instead used two 9x9 pans and split the filling between the two pans. It worked out great. Also I read that people complained it was too dry. I used a can of beef broth instead of boullion and instead of one cup, I used the whole can. It was definately not dry. My fiance loved it! He even went back for seconds. I will definately be making this again.
This recipe is really good! Instead of boullion cubes I used beef stock, that was the only change I made and we really liked it. Definitely making this again.
Great meat pie. I doubled the cheese and did not use carrots.
Very very good. I had added some tomato sauce to the juice. Thanks for the southern formula.
Super recipe, and exceeded our expectations! Rather than using puff pastry, used Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust for the bottom crust and Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls for the top crust. A great comfort food that would be widely enjoyed by many people. A definite make again. Thank you Angela156!! [See Notes].
