I Love Meat Pie's

We will start with these Pudding Basin bowls from John Lewis , Baking Accessories web site.
I do love these meat -pies from Natchitoches.

To day we have a a modern version of the an ancient meat-pie pudding.

Grate some suet (beef fat). Rub it into flour and add enough water to make a dough. Line the inside of a heat-proof bowl with this. (or substitute a modern pie crust dough!) Put a mixture of cooked meat and chopped onions into the middle. Place a layer of dough over the top of the meat mix and seal tightly all around the edges where it meets the side layer of dough. Wrap bowl and all in a pudding cloth, Also called muslin boiling cloth. Lower into a big pan of boiling water and cook until done.

Now this is from the Book by Carla Emery 's Country Living. The most fun to read I have had in a long time thanks to Frank.
