Double~Crust Aussie Meat Pie

This is my take on the simple Ausssie meat pie that is so popular in Australia and New Zealand. I prefer to make one large pie with a lattice top, but you can make mini hand-held pies that are more traditional if you wish. GREAT little pies to munch on while watching football or a simple and delicious weeknight meal the whole family will be very pleased with! Serve with a vegetable and/or mashed potatoes, a salad and you're good to go! Pie can also be topped with additional ketchup if desired, and added chopped mushrooms and/or cheese to the filling.
