The Best Meat Pie in the World is Just an Hour From Shreveport
One of My Favorite Towns in Louisiana is Natchitoches.
Yes, I am obsessed with the historical town that turns into a magical place around Christmas time. If you have not experienced the spirit of Christmas in Natchitoches, you're missing out. My best friend was born and raised in Natchitoches and we have spent a lot of time in her hometown.
I Had Never Had a Meat Pie Before I Moved to Lousiana.
I have had an empanada, which is the Latin version of a meat pie, but the flavor of an empanada compared to a meat pie made in Louisiana are two completely different things. I will forever remember the first time I tried Lasyone's famous meat pie. It was at the Christmas Festival and in that moment my life changed, for the better.
The Meat Pie Was Invented In Louisiana, And the Best One is Found at Lasyone’s In Natchitoches.
These meat pies have been in the works for several generations. James Lasyone began working on his recipe in the 1950s, way before Laysone's on 2nd Street opened up. After so many years of labor and love in the kitchen, James Lasyone figured out the secret of making the perfect meat pie.

I have asked my friend Mary Catherine for some meat pies before she leaves her hometown most of the time I throw them in the air fryer and it feels like I am in Downtown Natchitoches.
