Pastelicos Di Carne (Meat Filled Tarts) (M, TNT)
Source: my grandmother, Venoutcha Covo-Benaroyo
b>Serves: 8-10

2 pounds ground beef
2 large onions, chopped
chopped parsley (optional)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
olive oil to fry the onions
sesame seeds for topping (optional)
1-2 diced cooked potatoes (optional)
puff pastry
non-stick muffin baking pan (not deep cups)

In a large skillet, sauté the onion until brown, add the parsley and ground meat. Continue cooking until the meat is browned slightly, season with salt and pepper and allow to cool. Add the hard boiled eggs, and the potatoes.

Cut circles in the pastry, arrange them like pie shells in the baking dish. Fill with the mixture, cover with a smaller circle, pinch the edges and make small holes with a fork on the top. You can glaze the pastelicos with raw egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in a medium oven until pastry is golden brown.
