I have really been trying to cut down on grocery expenses lately. It seems like grocery bills just keep going up and up. So when I find a recipe that uses inexpensive ingredients, I’m all over it. That is what I thought when I saw this recipe. Simple, cheap ingredients. And it was even better that I had some potatoes on hand and ground beef in the freezer. Throw in some flour and butter, and dinner is ready!
I liked these ok, but I think they would be even better with a few changes. First of all, these are HUGE!! Each pastie is supposed to feed one person, but they are seriously humongous. I think one could easily feed 2 people. What I should have done is make them half the size. I also forgot to add salt and pepper, and you do not want to forget the salt and pepper in these, especially since there are so few ingredients.
What is your favorite recipe to use when you are trying to go “cheap”?
Meat and Potato Pasties
