"This recipe was given to me as part of a bridal shower gift. My husband loves meat and pies, so he was practically in heaven when I made this for him! I have also used a refrigerated pie crust and it is just as good. Originally submitted to PieRecipe.com."

My husband liked this, but it seemed a little to rustic to me. Maybe with some cheese or sausage to give the flavor some depth.
