For lunch, Faith had two of the mini pies, along with a leftover sliced boiled egg, baby carrots and a Cutie orange. Lunch is packed in our Easy Lunchboxes. I also bought 40lbs of apples last weekend with my produce basket, so she has homemade apple chips for snack. (Side note: Kids and dog love the dehydrated apple and banana chips. Especially the dog.)
Now, as for the mini pies, I used the base recipe linked above, then combined about 1.5 cups of diced ham, a big handful of shredded sharp cheddar, a few tablespoons of Italian Herb cooking creme and a few tablespoons of mayo, in a separate bowl. I mixed those four together, then put the tablespoon of the pie mix in the muffin pans, a large scoop of the ham mixture on top, then another tablespoon of pie mix on top and baked as directed (375 degrees for about a half hour). I managed a dozen out of the mixture I made--4 went in lunches, 5 went in the fridge, and 3 didn't make it to the cooling rack because that had to be taste tested. We just had to check!
