Mincemeat pies traditionally contain savory beef and suet that's sweetened up with fruits, nuts, and sweeteners. But this one's made with (oh my) bacon and bacon fat. It's a sweet, savory, and smoky version of mincemeat pie. Get the recipe »

Leftover Turkey Pot Pie
Leftover Turkey Pot Pie
Not sure what to do with extra turkey? Pot pie is the solution. The flavors here are traditional: celery, onion, and carrots with a little parsley thrown in. Feel free to take it in a new direction with, say, a tablespoon of curry powder. Baking the pies in ramekins decreases the cooking time (plus they look way cuter). Get the recipe »
