Yes ok that is a strange title and could generate improper thoughts....
As usual every year around this time I make Tourtiere; the traditionnal french canadian meat pie.
The dough was ready and so was the meat...
When I realized that I had no small aluminum foil plates left.....
I had a couple of large ones...but no small. I then remembered that last year I ran out and had to use Pyrex Pixies to make the pies.
So I used my large foil plates then the Pyrex Pixies....By then I still had meat and dough!
That is when I came up with balls of meat!
Actually tourtiere meat encased in pie crust.
They were delicious! That is thrifty ingenuity incarnate, yep!
Today I went to the dollar store and picked up 16 small aluminum foil pie plates, I like to be prepared....But Dan doubts I will remember where I stashed them next December!
We will see. I will surely do another meat pie post....and I will make some french canadian balles of meat for sure!
Be well, be safe and be thrifty!
