Easy Mini Meat Pies is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good appetizer too First time I made this, I followed the recipe very closely. The second time, I didn't have time to make the crust so I used freezer rolls from the store and sprinkled the dressing on the crust in the muffin pans. It was very good too.
