Lamb & Potato Pies
I went to a Middle Eastern grocery on the Peninsula to look for some tarama to make taramasalata. Though I didn’t quite find what I was looking for, I did pick up some pre-made dough perfect for meat pies (I think its intended for spanakopita). I had been craving meat pies; I was remembering the snack-sized meat pie from Hoosier Mama Pie Company that I had at the Green City Market on my last morning in Chicago.
- 1/4 lb. ground lamb
- small cooked potato (diced)
- 1/3 white onion (diced)
- handful chopped castelvetrano olives
- dash of cinnamon
- salt & pepper to taste
When adding the filling, I sprinkled some feta on top. Fresh meat pies hot out of the oven–yum! I have more wrappers in the fridge to make more of these super simple (though not light) pies.
