  • 1⁄8 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 1⁄4 tsp. dried sage
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • Add the ground pork, onion, eggs, cayenne, sage, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper to the pan. Mix well and spread out evenly in the pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Drain off any excess fat and move the meat to a plate. Press one pie crust into the bottom of the pie pan. Spread the meat mixture over the bottom crust and cover with the top crust.
