(7 Votes)
1 Hr

Perfect for brunch or dinner on Easter Sunday, our Easter Meat Pie packs big flavor in each bite that we know your gang will love!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 (1-pound) container ricotta cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 pound cooked ham, diced
  • 1/4 pound Genoa salami, diced
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Unroll 1 pie crust and place in a 9-inch pie plate.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese and eggs; beat with an electric mixer. Stir in ham, salami, mozzarella cheese, garlic powder, and pepper. Pour mixture into crust and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place remaining pie crust on top and fold edges together to seal. Cut six 1-inch slits in top crust.
  3. Bake 1 hour, or until crust is golden brown. Cool 10 minutes, then slice and serve.

Instead of the ham and salami I used cooked meatball pieces...delicious!

I've used pepperoni instead of ham. More flavor.

Ham, salami, AND pepperoni might be worth a try. 1/4 pound of each, maybe? Might add just a pinch of crushed red pepper, too.

Can I make this the night before and bake the next morning?

Unfortunately, we do not recommend making this Easter Meat Pie the night before and baking the next day because it would result in a very soggy crust. If you're short on time, we suggest prepping your ingredients (dicing the meats and shredding the cheese) the day before, and putting together the day of. Enjoy!

Mr. Food Team: What's with the recent section "sponsored links by taboola" on my email Mr. Food recipes? I think they are a nuisance and I have not seen a single one I am interested in opening. How can I get rid of them?

Can this be made ahead and then frozen?

mmmm Yummy! Though for Vegetarian substitution... "Quorn" chicken bits or ground beef

This sounds delicious, but is there a substitute for the ricotta cheese other than cottage cheese? I'm not a fan of the texture, so I tend to avoid foods that contain it.

Can this meat pie go without a top crust? I have a divided iron skillet from Grandma and have been looking for a recipe to use this old pan that she always used to make the best ever corn bread. Any suggestions Mr. Food?

Yes, you can definitely make this meat pie without a top crust if you prefer. Enjoy!

Mardi Gras Beignets

Celebrate Mardi Gras with a New Orleans classic! Beignets are basically fritters, in that they're made from dough that's dropped into hot oil and deep-fried until golden and delicious. Before they're ready to be enjoyed our Mardi Gras Beignets are sprinkled with confectioners' sugar, just like they do in N'awlins!
