Nothing food-wise is more fabulous than a meat pie. Truly, nothing. Meat pies - especially handheld meat pies ~


We're spending a lot of time in Africa recently, haven't we? Well, I know I just said last post that that meal was my favorite African meal so far. I'm here to say that this one tops it!

I researched on https://trip101.com/article/traditional-food-in-cameroon on what to make and decided to make African Meat Pies (Beef Empanadas) - Jayne Rain (jayne-rain.com) (self-explanatory).

First, gather your ingredients:

And realize it's a lot of ingredients XD

Mix up basic pastry crust.

You cook up your diced veg and meat. All get assembled into little hand pies - pastry, filling, more topping pastry. Then - bake - done!!!


These were yummy! Crispy, crumbly pastry. Moist filling, savory and comforting. Filling and fun = these were enjoyed by my boyfriend and me.
