We love the versatility of this recipe from Sophie Gray. You could add a layer of cheese to the pie filling if you like the mince and cheese combo or use the filling to make individual pies or pasties. This filling also works well for a cottage pie. Try making the filling in bulk when mince is on special and freeze flat in bags so a homemade pie is an easy option any night of the week.


Cooks Tip: Metal pie dishes conduct the heat more effectively than glass or ceramic dishes which may result in greasy pastry or a soggy bottom.
