Halloween Meat Pies- Pumpkin Heads! 10/24/12 with recipe

It's Halloween time! That can only mean one thing....

Click here for 2011 post
This recipe came from Taste of Home, called Trick or Treat Turnovers

I first get out all of my ingredients.
I grate up carrot and onion for veg without chunks.

Fry some meat, season to taste. 
I used Salt, onion and garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce.

Once the meat cooks up a bit, add the carrots, onion and I also added minced garlic.
Once there is no more pink add your cheese and mustard.

I can't say I have measurements really...
I used 2 lbs beef, 1 large carrot, 1 medium onion, maybe a tablespoon of minced garlic, sprinkled the seasoning then a handful of cheese- adjust to however you like to flavor your meat =)
You can probably even use a taco seasoning mix.

Then get some jumbo refrigerated biscuits- I used flaky this time and it was a mess 
because as I rolled the dough out...the dough kept flaking off haha.
I rolled them out so they were 5-6 inches in diameter.
Spoon about 1/2 cup of meat then add the top rolled out biscuit.
I cut pumpkin faces out for mine...Oh and I attempted (and kinda failed) at cutting out our NASCAR drivers numbers....it's supposed to be an 18, 14 and 48.... The 18 and 14 aren't too bad but the 48 needs some work...heehee

Bake on a greased pan @ 350* for 20 mins
I brushed the tops with an egg wash prior to inserting in the oven.


Out of the oven:

Q said if you flipped the numbered ones on the side they looked like weird Frankenstein's LOL

MMMMM so tasty

Make some for your family this Halloween! 
You can even make the meat in advance if you wanted-
just reheat when ready to fill the biscuits.
