Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey or beef
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup chili sauce or ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cups mashed potato flakes
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup crushed potato chips
  • Paprika, optional

Directions

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute or until tender; drain. Stir in the chili sauce, vinegar and salt; set aside.

In a small saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil. Pour into a small bowl. Whisk in potato flakes until blended. Beat in cream cheese until smooth.

Press 1 biscuit dough onto the bottom and up the sides of each of 10 greased muffin cups. Fill with beef mixture. Spread potato mixture over beef. Sprinkle with potato chips; press down lightly.

Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with paprika if desired. Serve immediately, or cool before placing in a single layer in a freezer container. Cover and freeze for up to 2 months.

To use frozen pies: Thaw in the refrigerator for 8 hours. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until heated through. 

Pie Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Pie Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
