A Pie By Any Other Name

Here's a version of Italian Meat Pie I made.  It's not a pie, and it's not Italian, I changed ingredients around to make this and it came out pretty delish.  This was for 2 servings, but it could easily serve 3 or 4 if you want to have it as a snack or add side dishes.

Cook the sausage and drain fat if there is any.  Scramble the eggs and add the cheese and any herbs and spices you wish.  I also added thawed frozen chopped spinach and some finely slicely carrots.  Pour the egg/cheese/herb mixture into the sausage and cook SLIGHTLY, you don't want to completely cook the eggs as they will continue to cook in the dough and otherwise will be too dry if you finish them up in the pan.

Important:  Remove the pan from the burner and let the mixture cool for at least 15 minutes depending on the temperature in your kitchen.  If you add the mixture to the dough immediately after cooking, the dough will be very uncooperative and you will have a bit of a messy dough.

I put the dough on parchment paper, season if you like and then put the semi-cooled mixture in the middle of the dough.  Turn the long sides of the dough in first.  Then roll up the dough from one end, as a jelly roll.  I brushed the dough with egg wash or you can use oil, and I like to sprinkle parsley and garlic on top.

The dough doesn't come with cooking instructions.  I cooked it at 350F for about 18 minutes.  Slice, eat, and enjoy!  

I think the next one I make will be ham and cheese.  Or, a veg and cheese. What other combos would be tasty?

Wow, this is very different! Sounds great, I've had Canadian meat pie (tourtiere) but never something like this. Must file it under "try!"
