Last Night for Dinner we had Pie
Middle of the week, cooking isn't the most important thing on my mind, however we still want to eat something delish. The answer was pies!! As always I am still in love with my chest freezer, I think it is one of the best kitchen gadgets I ever bought, it allows me to freeze all leftovers for later yummy meals, and as a consequence I have learnt to cook in bulk to ensure left overs are available.
I though I would just write a quick note on just how EASY it is to make pies, I am sure most of you have done this a billion times like we have.
Now for the tasty bit. Put your leftovers in the centre.
Fold the edges of the pastry from around the edge, over the top, try and make sure it all meets up and there are no (or very little) gaps.
Depending on what you are cooking you can spray some oil on top to make it gold and crispy. This brisket mix is quite oily anyway, so I know I don't need to add the extra oil.
I put pepper on top, sometimes parmesan... just for colour and flavour....
Into the oven at 180 degrees for approximately 20 mins...
Don't forget to check on them! Then after 20 mins I turn the oven back up to 200 degrees to make the tops go crispy and golden.
When it looks right, it is cooked!
Or if you are like me, photograph it first, hahaha. Then eat.
Brett is always amused when I 'make my food pleasing to the eye' :P
