Ingredients:  
1 1/2 lb. ground pork (not too fatty but not real lean)
1/2 cup finely copped onion (medium)
2 large potatoes
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground sage
2 9" pie crusts (I buy pre-made like Pillsbury)

Directions:
Directions:
In saucepan combine pork, onion and 1/2 cup water. Mix well. Cook covered over low heat for 2 hours, stirring often to break up large lumps (if you notice that
it doesn't look like there is enough liquid add a little water). Cool and skim off fat (only if it looks real fatty). Cook potatoes (can cook at the same time as pork in separate pan). Drain, add potatoes to meat mixture along with spices, mash with potato masher, blend well. Place 1 pie crust in pie plate then add mixture cover with top crust, seal with a fork (or any way you want), brush top with a little milk, make 4 slits in top and bake at 425 for 20 minutes.

Note: I use clear pie plates when I do these, after 20 minutes I check the bottom crust if it's golden it's done, if edges start browning too much cover with tin foil.
