Mutton and Potato Pie

Who in the twenty-first century has leftover mutton in the fridge? Well, just in case. 

Adapted from Miss Beecher’s domestic receiptbook: designed as a supplement to her Treatise on domestic economy.

The luncheon pies at Simons Mansion were quite a departure from the peanut butter sandwiches Melissa ate at home over a book. Yet, Melissa found it impossible not to eat them when a vampire scrutinizes every bite.

 Mutton and Potato Pie

Leftover mashed potatoes
Minced onion
Slices of mutton
Leftover bits of salt pork

Season potatoes with butter, onion, salt, and pepper. Butter a deep dish and spread a layer of potatoes. Add a layer of mutton and season with salt, pepper, and salt pork. Alternate layers, ending with potatoes. Bake 60 to 90 minutes.
