postheadericon Savory Pocket Pies and fillings

First, make 1 batch (or a double batch) of the Pie Crust. Additionally, I recommend the cupcake-size foil tins to help support the pocket pies.

Then, choose your filling(s), and prepare those while the Pie Crust rests and chills. Each filling is designed to fill 6-8 pocket pies.

Pie Fillings

BBQ Pork

  • 3/4 lb boneless pork, diced

  • splash cooking oil
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1/3 onion, 1 clove garlic, 1/3 bell pepper minced very fine or processed in a food processor
  • a few squirts bbq sauce

Using a small fry pan over medium heat, heat the oil and add the pork and vegetables. Stir frequently and cook until veggies are tender and pork is cooked through. Remove to a bowl and let cool.

Sausage filling

  • 3/4 to 1lb italian sausage, NOT precooked

  • 1/3 onion, 1 clove garlic, 1/3 bell pepper minced very fine or processed in a food processor
  • splash cooking oil

Using a medium skillet, heat the oil on medium and add the vegetables. Squeese the sausage out of its casing. Stir frequently and break up the pieces of sausage. Cook until sausage is cooked through and veggies are tender.

Beef filling

  • 3/4 lb beef, diced (whatever is on sale – thin stir fry strips work well)

  • 3 splashes balsamic vinegar
  • 2 TBS tomato sauce
  • 1/3 onion, 1 clove garlic, 1/3 bell pepper minced very fine or processed in a food processor
  • splash cooking oil

Heat oil over medium heat. Add beef and veggies. Stir while cooking. When food is almost cooked through, add balsamic vinegar & tomato sauce. finish cooking. Move to a bowl to cool before making pocket pies.

Pepperoni Pizza filling

  • 1 pkg presliced pepperoni

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (you may not use this much

Place both items near where you will be assembling the pocket pies. When filling a pie, lay 6-8 pieces of pepperoni inside teh pie, then 1 teaspoon of sauce on top of the pepperoni.

Ham Filling

  • 1 pkg presliced ham

  • bottle of bbq sauce (you will only use a little bit per pie)

Place both items near where you will be assembling the pocket pies. When filling a pie, lay 2-3 slices of ham inside the pie and top with a squirt of bbq sauce.

Use whatever else your family likes or has laying around the house or happens to be on sale that week – about 3/4lb meat makes about 8 pocket pies.
