Make Ahead Mushroom Pie Filling

Mushroom pie fillingThis is a weekday meal so, by it’s nature, it has to be quick and easy. You can make the filling (or the whole pie) ahead of time if it’s easier. 

This recipe is warming and very peppery! 

If you wanted to bulk it out a bit you could add carrots (this would sweeten it) or potatoes. 

Perfect for a winter night.

Before we start I have to put my hands up and say that this is not a traditionally accurate homity pie recipe. A true homity pie recipe would have wholemeal flour (which half of my kids don’t really like) and you would never find Le Roule cheese in a traditional homity pie, no sir…however, as with many of recipe’s we end up making, my homity pie recipe is a concoction of ingredients that I happen to have in the house at the time. Le roule and cream cheese found their way into the homity pie because I didn’t have much garlic and no creme fraiche at all! The important thing was that ended up with a great meal that all of the family actually ate. Read the rest of this entry »

Sausagemeat Plait Recipe

Sausagemeat Plait - cookedRough Sausagemeat Plait Recipe

I was looking for something quick and easy to throw together for an easy Saturday meal, and sausagemeat plait came to mind. Buy a ready made pack of pastry and a load of sausagemeat and we’re away. Unfortunately, I was sidetracked by curiosity…Last week, I came across a Pieminister recipe for ‘Rough’ pastry and thought it might be a good idea to give it a whirl…so sausagemeat in hand I bought a pack of butter and off I went!
