National Pie Day is this Wednesday.
I like making savory meat pies (aka hand pies) on the Egg. I think you get a crisper, tastier crust than ones made in the oven. I like these because you can stuff them just about anything, especially leftover BBQ pork or chicken. Here are the ones I made yesterday.
These that I made yesterday had a filling made of leftover pulled pork, pepper jack cheese, fire roasted bell pepper, anahiem chile, red onion, cilantro, and some Blues Hog bbq sauce.
The dough was 10 Tbsp butter, 6 oz cream cheese, and 2 Tbsp cream whipped together and then 2 1/2 cups of AP flour and 1 tsp salt blended in. Divide into two 5" x 3/4" discs, wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or more. Divide each disk into 4 equal portions and make into balls. (Dough recipe from the book Savory Pies).
Roll each out into a 6" circle and put some filling in there.
Wet the edge with an egg wash and fold over and crimp it sealed. Then I put them on the Egg at 425f, plate setter legs down, 1/4" spacers and a pizza stone on top of that.
The first batch took 30 minutes, the second batch was done at little quicker, around 25.
Alternative dough method: If you don't want to make your own dough, you can try the canned biscuit technique, that was how my mom taught me as a kid. Overlap 2 canned biscuits to make a figure 8 and then roll them flat. Then stuff with your filling and bake 8-10 minutes at 425f. (Here's more about that method
I'm getting hungry, I wish that I had one leftover for breakfast!
