My "Old Fashioned" Pork & Potato Pie

Want a nice old recipe for some "comfort" food?  Try this one I think you'll like it!!

For starters this is roughly a 9 inch pie. 

2 lbs fresh ground pork
1 medium yellow onion
6-8 white potato's
seasoning salt, salt / pepper to taste
1 tablespoon ground sage
milk (your choice of any)
2 - 9" pie crusts (hint - pre-made is easier!!)

Peel potato's, cut into chunks and boil until tender.
At the same time peel & chop onion - place in a frying pan with the ground pork.
Add salt, pepper, seasoning salt & sage.
Cook over medium heat until pork is fully cooked.

When cooked drain potato's, add butter, salt & pepper and about 1/4 cup of milk - and mash potato's.
Once the pork is cooked, drain the pork fat, then mix the meat mixture with the potato's.  At this point taste and adjust seasoning to desired flavor.

Use 9" pie pan and place the bottom crust down, add the mixture.  Before putting the top crust on wet the edge so the top will stick, then place on top and press the edges to seal the crust.  Place 3 slits in the top crust for air vents.

Place pie in oven and cook at 350 degrees until crust is golden brown, cut, serve and enjoy!!

Some of my family members prefer gravy on top.
