In 1968, while we were in the Army we called this Chinese Pie (Don't know why). In those days we were young, married and with not much money. We made it every couple of weeks. It is great, inexpensive and very easy to make.

Simple and quick to make (even moreso if you've already cooked the meat and you use instant potatoes), and extremely, extremely tasty. I'm a dunce at cooking, and in my opinion, this is an absolutely fool-proof recipe that's amazingly tasty.
