Last week I had the opportunity to get together with Pepperidge Farm and a few friends to learn about some of the simple ways you can serve delicious, quick, and easy food for your game day celebrations using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry.
With everything from meals, to appetizers and desserts I’ve got quite the round-up for you, but first let me share my very own recipe for beef and bacon meat pies.
In Australia, a traditional football food (yes for Aussie Rules football) is meat pies. Unlike chicken pot pies in the U.S. meat pies are filled with beef and you can get them with an assortment of other fillings too, they can become quite complex and have become more gourmet over the years, but the football tradition is still the standard meat pie.
Meat pies in general are about the size of a pot pie, but for parties we like to do party sized pies (or party pies as we call them). Party pies are much smaller, more like an appetizer or finger food. We serve them with tomato sauce (or ketchup) and if you are a true Aussie you peel the top layer of puff pastry off the pie, add the sauce to the filling and then eat them separately. Which amused my boyfriend to no end when I was showing him how to eat a pie Aussie style when I made these – he already thinks we are a crazy lot so this didn’t exactly help my cause of convincing him we aren’t.
Today is Wednesday January 23rd. It’s also National Pie Day.
No time to bake a pie? No worries.
This delicious pie is a Marie Callender’s Coconut Cream Mini Pie. A package of two cost me $1.99 (prices may vary at different stores).

When my husband suggested that we give the kids just one bag to collect apples when we went apple picking in Julian recently,…
This is a pie for Mikey … and Jennie. Mikey was taken from Jennie suddenly. She requested that we make Mikey's favorite Peanut…
I love dessert. Truly. I'm a dessert kinda gal. Growing up there was always, yes I mean every single night, dessert after dinner. It's one thing I have been seriously slacking on around here for a while, but I'm getting back into the swing of it in hoping to keep with my mum's tradition.
On Saturday I baked lemon meringue pie, one of my favorites … you'll hear me say that a lot.
I picked up a really cute pie baking dish at Michaels for $2.99 before Halloween. It had the recipe printed on it. It sounded delish. It WAS delish. Even if the rest of my family don't eat desserts, you can always count on me to eat them and it only took 3 nights for me to polish off this one. Randy and Jay don't really like dessert, they are chocolate chip cookie kinda guys. The babies like cake, pudding, cookies, jello … you know, the basic stuff, but aren't used to eating the yummy desserts that I love so much. All the more for me I say.
Tomorrow I'll be posting all of the delicious pumpkin, apple and fall related recipes I've been baking over the past week, along with my turkey recipe for those who have been asking for it.
