  Categories: Pies/tarts
       Yield: 2 servings
 
       6 x  Or 7 medium potatoes
       2 tb Oil
   1 1/2 lb Medium ground beef
       1 lg Onion, diced
     1/4 ts Allspice
     1/4 ts Cinnamon
     1/4 ts Garlic salt
            Salt and pepper to taste
            Pastry for 2 double-crust
            9-inch pies
 
   COMMENTS: The large quantity of potatoes and modest amount of
 seasonning
   seems to reduce the beef flavor. We vote for a little less potato and
 an
   extra pinch of spice. Boil potatoes and mash coarsely. Heat oil in
 large,
   heavy duty frying pan and brown beef and onion. Stir in potatoes,
 allspice,
   cinnamon, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 400'F.. Line
 two
   9-inch pie pans with pastry. Using slotted spoon, fill pans with meat
   mixture. Cover with top crusts, cutting vents so steam can escape. Bake=
 
 in
   preheated oven for 45 minutes or until golden-brown. Makes two
 tourti=8Ares.
