Sausage Gavy Birds nest pies

michelle 'FLAME' kelley


This is a scaled down version of a recipe handed down to me from my father . this recipe is so versatile that you can change out the ingredients from breakfast to lunch to dinner just by what you put in. I make shepherd's pie, ground beef and ground sausage in a light gravy, mashed or cooked cubed potatoes and a veggie of your choice, drain everything very well as to not make it too greasy or soggy. make your pie shells as for this recipe and swap out the sausage for the beef and sausage. bake the same amount of time and at the same temp.
