This recipe was given to me as part of a bridal shower gift. My husband loves meat and pies, so he was practically in heaven when I made this for him! I have also used a refrigerated pie crust and it is just as good. Originally submitted to PieRecipe.com.

This pie is DELICIOUS! Even my five-year-old husband who refuses to eat like an adult LOVED this dish! It was easy to make and tastes great. I was nervous about using a spice like mace on meat, but the spices were perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe!

This was easy & a big hit with the kids, but the adults found it typical of traditional European country-fare: filling, but a bit boring. It was tasty, but a little dry. I'll be serving it on cold winter days........maybe with a gavy or sauce on the side!

This was great! The prep time is minimal.
