Meat pies and chocolate pudding

I made these yesterday for dinner, both are from Food Network Magazine.

British Meat Pies

What you need

  • 1/2 pound Sausage, I used the link dinner sausage
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 piece of celery, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes
  • salt, pepper
  • can of biscuit dough
  • egg
  1. Cook sausage, onion, celery, and carrot in skillet then mix in mashed potatoes
  2. roll out dough and cut into 3 inch circles
  3. spoon mixture into dough and pinch the edges together
  4. brush with a beaten egg
  5. cook at 350 for about 15 minutes

If I make this again, I’ll use 2 cans of biscuit dough or a bigger can (or a puff pastry which you can find in the freezer section). I used a smaller 10 oz can and it wasn’t enough.  I also think you could substitute eggs and it would make a really good breakfast, especially if you are needing to eat on the run.

Chocolate Pudding

What you need

  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 5 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  1. whisk the yolks, sugar and cornstarch
  2. in saucepan over medium heat melt chocolate with milk and salt
  3. when chocolate is completely melted pour over egg mixture, whisk constantly then pour back into saucepan and stir until thick, about 12-15 minutes
  4. remove from the hear and stir in vanilla then divide into dessert cups, cover in plastic wrap, and put in fridge for about 2 hours

If I make this again I will use a much sweeter chocolate and less vanilla. The vanilla seemed really strong and sort of overpowered the chocolate.
