-(see recipe)

I am going to tell you a story about this one. Something new, eh? In
1960, when I was a sophomore in college, a dear friend and I traveled for
several months in Europe. We ate very well on the Continent, even on
student budgets, but when we arrived in Great Britain things changed. The
food was not very good at the time and we found ourselves living on cold
pork pies purchased in English delicatessens. We had eaten them for a solid
week when we arrived in Wales. A charming Welshwoman invited us home for a
“typical Welsh meal.” We were so excited at the prospect of something new
and home-cooked. Need I go on with this story? You guessed it. A cold pork

I have added a bit of flavor to this dish that was not to be found in the
Welsh version, nor is this cooked in the traditional Welsh manner. It is
much more typical of early-American cooking.

Mix all of the above together, except the crust, and place in an 8-inch
deep-dish pie plate. Bake, covered, at 375? for 1/2 hour. Remove from oven
and pour off the accumulated fat. Cover with the crust topping and return
to the oven for 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and flaky.

Allow to cool completely before serving.

This is great for a first course, a midnight snack, or a luncheon dish.
