Savory Beef and Veggie Hand Pies

I have been making savory beef and veggie hand pies for years. They are the perfect portable and handheld dinner! First, I am all about sitting down to the table as a family for dinner. That is something that we strive for every single night. But truth be told, for years we spent dinner time at one sports field or another.

Yep, springtime meant hours upon hours upon hours sitting sideline cheering on my children.

So how does a mom feed her family when she works all day, shuttles kids to and fro all afternoon, and then sits in a lawn chair baseline, grading papers, all the while cheering on the young players straight through the dinner hour? Whatever that hour may be.

Well, I started packing hand pies for dinner! They are easy to put together, and because you put them together, you know exactly what is going into the meal. That is important! Plus they are soooo easy to transport, and the the kids love them!

The kids are hungry right after the game – or between games given the number of siblings that were playing. Rather than resorting to the drive-thru or the sugar snacks that were handed out post game to the players, I would pack of cooler with foil wrapped hand pies (along with a thermal pack), and they were ready to enjoy during or immediately following the games.

This made this kids happy, and I felt good about what my children were eating for dinner when we were not able to sit down to the dinner table.

It was savory beef and veggie hand pies to the rescue! And while this beef and veggie mixture is what I most often made up – you can make a number of different fillings. I found that left over chicken and broccoli worked equally well.

Like I said, there are so many ways to fill a hand pie. This recipe often gets dressed up with spinach or topped with cheese – you name it. This is one of those recipes that works with whatever you have in the fridge.

And my ball players? They played for years!

  13. I remember the days of sitting at events for hours and hours. I loved each and every minute of it, but was always glad to have something planned for dinner at home. These meat pies look really yummy and even though I don’t have a little one at home any longer, I know my family would love them.
