Cupcake-Tin Pork Pies

These were a hit with the whole family…

3/4 lb. ground pork
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 tspn. salt
1/2 tspn. black pepper
1 T chopped fresh sage
1/2 c. breadcrumbs
2 (9-inch) discs prerolled, refrigerated pie dough, such as Pillsbury
2 eggs, beaten

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Grease two 6-cup muffin tins with butter or spray with something like Pam.
3. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients but the dough and 1 tablespoon of the eggs.
4. Unroll the dough and cut out twelve 4-inch circles with a biscuit cutter or the rim of a drinking glass.
5. Reroll the scraps, then cut out 12 more 2-inch circles.
6. Line the bottoms and sides of the tins with the 4-inch rounds.
7. Divide the filling evenly among the cups. Press the 2-inch rounds on top, pinching the edges together to seal.
8. Poke a hole in the center of each pie.
9. Brush with the reserved egg and bake until the tops are browned and puffed slightly, 30 to 35 minutes.
10. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing the pies. Serve warm.

What did the family think? I had mine plain and they were super yummy. Hubby had his with some really good mustard. Oldest child had his plain and youngest child ate his with ketchup. Any way you eat them they are going to be good. At one point during our meal they were described as “a meatball in a crust”. Oldest child also said, “these are SO good”. I think they were a hit!
