Ingredients

From The Spice & Tea Exchange®
2 tsp Vik's Garlic Fix! Spice Blend
½ tsp Thyme
¼ tsp 4 Peppercorn Spice Blend, ground

1 lb ground pork
½ lb ground beef
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 egg 

Preparation

PREHEAT oven to 375°F.
PREPARE pie crust and line 9-inch deep dish pie plate with bottom crust.
COOK all spices, ground pork, ground beef, and onion in a Dutch oven (or deep sauce pan) with ½ cup water. Stir constantly until meat is light brown in appearance, but still moist; about 5 mins.
POUR mixture into pie crust. Cover with top crust. Seal and press firmly on the edges with a fork, cutting off the excess. Cut at least 6 slits.
