This is a fantastic way to encourage the kiddos to eat their veggies - mine didn't even ask for seconds, they asked for thirds and fourths! I have a family of five, and since my beloveds can't have 'Just One', I had to make a big batch. The ingredient measurements can be cut in half if need be. 

*1 lb Ground Beef
*2 Sweet Italian Sausage Links, casings removed
*2-2.5 tsp fresh, minced garlic (to taste)
*1-1.5 tsp minced onion flakes (to taste)
*Salt & Pepper (to taste)
*OPTIONAL: 1/8 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes - My hubby likes these included, my kiddos are quite happy without it! It's your call!
*12 oz frozen, chopped broccoli, thawed
*1 can golden sweet corn kernels, drained
*2 cups of Italian Blend cheese, shredded (In my grocer I found a 6-cheese blend of Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan, Asiago, Romano & Fontina cheese!) If you can'at find the Italian Blend, try shredded Mozzarella or a Pizza Blend
*1 cup Sour Cream
*3 8 oz cans Pillsbury Butter Flake Croissant Rolls
*1 egg, beaten
*Sesame Seeds

Heat a nice sized, deep Pan over Medium heat, brown Ground Beef and Sweet Italian Sausages together until no longer pink, adding the minced garlic, minced onion, salt and pepper, and Red Pepper Flakes if you decided to use them. then drain.  

Return the meat mixture to the pan, and add broccoli, corn, cheese and sour cream; blend together well with your favorite cooking spoon, until warmed. Oh gosh, yummy, can't you just smell the aroma??

Divide the Croissant Rolls into Four equal rectangles. With a rolling pin, roll the rectangles out making them a little bigger each direction.
Take about 1/2 cup of the meat mixture and place it in each rectangle. 

Here there are two ways to seal your "Pot Pies" - the first way is to fold one edge over the meat mixture and seal all sides using fork tines. (Pictured)  Not even placed in the oven yet, and they already look so good!

The 2nd way (and more elegant in appearance, in my opinion!) is to put about 1/2 cup mixture in the center of each rectangle, bringing each corner of the rectangle up toward the middle and twisting them sealed. (Pictured below) Even though both "Pot Pies" tasted exactly the same, my family wanted this particular one on their plate because it was fancier. :)

Dip a pastry brush into the beaten egg and give each pastry an egg wash, and sprinkle Sesame Seeds on top. Put them in the oven for about 22 minutes, or until golden brown!

The result is a very pleasing, Mouth-watering "Pot-Pie" with a delicious buttery, flaky crust - and it smells so delicious coming out of the oven!  Ta-daaaaaah!

Enjoy!! :)

Much Love and Blessings to You and Yours,
