Meat Pie

I made this a month ago. I really hope you enjoy it.


3/4 of a kilo minced pork
fetta cheese (as much as you want, you can also use any cheese you want)
2 onions thinly slices
lots of parsley
1 cup of fresh creme
1 egg
Butter or oil for the pan

For the Dough:

3 cups flour
3 spoons butter
1 small yogurt
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder


Put the minced pork in a pan without oil and cook until golden.

Add the onions and let them cook until they absorb all the water.

Add the fetta cheese, the parsley, salt and pepper and fresh creme and mix well.
Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Method for the Dough:

To make the dough you have to put all the ingredients together and mix well with your hands. The ingredients are approximate so you have to learn the feel of the dough as you knead. You may need more flour but add just enough of the dough to come together.
When the dough is not sticky anymore, it means its ready.

You separate the dough into two even pieces.

Roll the dough out and adjust it into the buttered pan.
Beat the egg and then brush the dough so that the meat wont crack the dough.

Put the meat on top of the dough and slowly try to cover all the corners of the dough with it. When your done roll the rest of the dough on top and stitch it well with the dough underneath.

Use the rest of the beaten egg to brush the dough on top.
Use a fork to put holes on the dough, so that the meat doesn't become dry.

Cook for approximately 40 minutes to an hour until golden.

Bon Appetit!!
Love Mary!
