In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook onions and garlic for 30 seconds. Add pork and veal; cook, breaking up meat with wooden spoon, about 15 minutes.

Mix in sweet potatoes, broth, bread crumbs, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool; cover and refrigerate for 3 hours. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place 4 pastry pie crusts into 4 pie plates; divide filling evenly among pie crusts. Top with remaining pie crusts, trimming pastry if necessary. Using tip of sharp knife, cut steam vents in top. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Brush pies with milk; flute edges decoratively. Bake on bottom rack of oven until crust is golden, 50 minutes to 1 hour.

Test Kitchen Tip: If you're short on time, make the pastry in advance or use store-bought pastry dough for pie crusts.
