Mother Bluebeard’s Famous Scurvy Meat Pies
Me mother used to make these meat pies before a long voyage. She used to tell me, “you can’t rape and pillage, if you haven’t stomach fillage.” Ay, she was a strange one. But she never once touched a morsel of fruit or vegetable. She was a real man, the kind with a long beard who eats only meat but eats smart, and gets no scurvy.
Ingredients:(Serves 8 hungry pirates).
- 1 box Betty Crocker pie crust
- 1 lb. leftover meat, minced
- a dash of basil
- 1/4 stick of butter
- 1 pkg. Hall’s Vitamin C throat lozenges
Directions: Make crust mix and form dough into a ball. Cut the ball in half with your hook hand. Roll each half into a circle, and spread one circle in the bottom of a nine-inch pie pan. Fill with meat. Add a dash of basil for a rich yet subtle enhancement of flavor. Put on top crust. Coat with butter (or mARRgarine if you’ve been puttin’ on the pounds below deck). Top with a heavy sprinkle of lozenges.
