Gluten Free Meat Pie

Gluten Free Meat Pie

This recipe was inspired by Chad's memories of his grandma's meat pies.  This recipe is not his grandma's but his own recipe, which I have to say is absolutely delicious!
Gluten Free pie crust (for the top and bottom of the pie)
1/2 pkg (6-8 oz) of bacon 
1 medium white onion, diced
1 heaping Tablespoon minced garlic
1.5 lbs ground beef
1/4 cup dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg yolk (optional)

Pie Crust - We found a great gluten free pie crust recipe and it turned out very good.  Click here for the recipe.  A gluten free pie crust is very fragile, but I followed the detailed instructions on the recipe with excellent results.  We also used Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour.  We had to get resourceful because we don't have a rolling pin.  So, I used my stainless steel water bottle.  It worked great! 

Rolling the dough for the pie crust

Pie Filling -  
 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cook the bacon and set aside.  After it cools, chop the bacon into small chunks.  Drain the bacon fat and set aside.

 Dice the onion and add to the stock pot along with the ground beef and minced garlic.

Stir over medium-high heat.  We used frozen ground beef so it took about 20 min to cook.  Finely mince the beef as it cooks.  We use a wooden spoon.  Drain the beef fat and add some of the bacon fat for flavor.  Add the 1/4 cup of parsley, salt, pepper, and bacon.  Stir until everything is heated through.

Add the filling to the pie crust.

 Add the top crust and brush with an egg yolk if desired.  The egg yolk will make it brown nicely.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is brown.

Cut into slices and serve.
Bon app├ętit!
