I made my meatloaf, set aside a nice chunk of it for later before cooking it, and then later used what I had set aside to make these! Also, this time I made the meatloaf I added puréed green, orange, and yellow peppers for more flavor. Why puréed? Because my husband and 10 year old both claim they hate them. But when they have no idea that I add them in like this they still think the food tastes yummy! Haha! What they don't know gets them more vitamins and veggies in their diets.
I also used a couple cans of premade biscuits instead of making dough. For these I prefer the Walmart brand jumbo flakey butter biscuits. The second time I made the meat pies I used a different brand and they didn't taste nearly as good.
Fold the biscuit over so that the meat is encased in it like a pocket.
Use your fingers to press along the edges of the biscuit pocket opening.
Repeat, repeat, repeat!
Bake them according to the directions on the biscuit container for temp. But only for half the time. Halfway through pull them out of the oven and flip them over. Especially do this if you're using dark baking pans! Then return them to the oven and bake for the remainder of the time. You might need to go an extra couple minutes to make sure they are cooked all the way through.
Once they are golden they are done!! Just be careful since they will be very HOT inside. If serving to a child cut it open to let it air out!
