Instructions

Cook potatoes and prep
1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix Guide for Step 2 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/2 tsp mild, 3/4 tsp medium and 1 tsp warmly spiced! Cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a medium pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered until fork-tender, 10-12 min. Drain and return potatoes to the same pot, off heat. Roughly mash 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into potatoes until slightly mashed. (TIP: 'Smashed' potatoes will still have a few chunks!) Season with salt and pepper, to taste. While potatoes cook, peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut bacon into 1/4-inch pieces.

Cook filling
2

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then swirl the pan until melted. Transfer melted butter to a small bowl, then set aside. Add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan, then half the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions soften slightly, 1-2 min. Add bison and bacon. Cook, breaking up bison into smaller pieces, until no pink remains in bison and bacon starts to crisp, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika-Garlic Blend, 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (dbl all for 4 ppl) over bison and bacon. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. (NOTE: Reference spice guide.)Remove the pan from heat.

Assemble and bake pie
3

Add smashed potatoes to the pan with bison and bacon, then stir to combine. Transfer bison-potato filling to an 8x8-inch baking dish. Unroll puff pastry and discard wax paper. Lay pastry over top of bison-potato filling, then press pastry edges onto the sides of the baking dish. Brush top of pastry with melted butter, then sprinkle with 1/8 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl). Using a knife, make 3 small slits in top of pastry (6 slits for 4 ppl). Place the dish on an unlined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven, rotating the dish halfway through, until pastry is golden-brown and flaky, 20-25 min. Meanwhile, cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces.

Cook tomato chutney
4

Heat another medium pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2-3 min. Add tomatoes, 1 tsp Smoked Paprika-Garlic Blend, 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl both for 4 ppl) and half the balsamic glaze. Cook, stirring often, until tomatoes break down and chutney thickens, 6-8 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. (TIP: Mash tomatoes slightly with a fork to help them break down.)

Make salad
5

Meanwhile, core, then cut apple into 1/8-inch slices. Add remaining balsamic glaze and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then whisk to combine. When pie is out of the oven, add spring mix and apples to the bowl with vinaigrette, then toss to combine.

Finish and serve
6

Allow pie to rest for 3-5 min before serving. Divide pie and salad between plates. Serve tomato chutney alongside.
