Probably the easiest pie you will ever make.
Shuffling through the mountain of food that wasn’t pie my gaze settled upon an old canned favourite, corned meat.
My attention nearly turned to the baked beans in ham sauce when I had an epiphany. I remembered that my search through the freezer moments earlier revealed I had some puff and shortcrust pastry. Right there and then I knew it had to be done.
I was feeling, as usual, one day like I needed a pie for lunch. I went to the freezer to see if I had any frozen ones I could nuke in the microwave, but I was shit out of luck. Not really wanting to go through the effort of going down the street to buy one, I disappointingly went to the cupboard to see what other options I had for a quick bite.
- I emptied the can to make it into a pie tin
- took the label off so it wouldn’t burn
- lined the tin with shortcrust pastry
- put the meant back in the tin
- covered with puff pastry
- cooked in preheated oven for about 15-20 mins or until golden brown
Juicy, and delicious, this would have to be the easiest meat pie I’ve ever made. But it filled the spot, and the best thing was there was no cleaning up, just turf the pie tin in the trash!
Give it a go. Let me know how you went, I’d like to see what choice of canned goodness you tried. Bon Appetit
