Italian Easter Meat Pie


  • 1lb. ham, diced
  • 1lb. salami, diced
  • 1lb. pepperoni, diced
  • 1lb basket cheese, diced
  • 1 container ricotta cheese
  • 3 dozen eggs beaten


Mix well. Make pie crust, sprinkle black pepper in the pie crust. Roll out to fit 2 9x13 inch cake pans. Divide the mixture into both cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees F till golden on top, maybe 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

My family makes this at Easter, but not on Good Friday. Can be served warm or cold. Enjoy!
