A Different Kind Of Pie

If I had been able to find my rolling pin(the kids had it and I found it later)I could have closed the pies, but either way they came out nice. If you can't find the cheese i used, use a mild cheese and add a little more BBQ sauce. I wouldn't substitute Pepperjack as it's not the kind of subtle heat you want. While you can also take a short cut and use instant mash potatoes I don't believe you will get the same wonderful taste.
