Homemade Mince & Cheese Pie
Pies are such a comfort food. I cant think of anybody who would turn down a tasty home made pie. There is something so comforting about a warm pie coming out of the oven, freshly baked spreading those amazing aromas all around the house. Mince & Cheese Pies are a big thing in New Zealand. They are typically made with fluffy pastries filled with a mince meat, cheese and some type of sauce. There are of course, a variety of fillings and everyone has their favourite. Here, I share with you my version of a cozy, homemade mince & cheese pie.
This mince & cheese pie is a home-made version of the conventional bakery or frozen supermarket pie. It is made with simple ingredients and it is fuss-free. You can make both your crust and pie filling from scratch and not regret a single second spent on creating this recipe. Leon was the inspiration for this recipe, he loves the classic NZ pies. So, to add to this experience I decided to prepare a home-made mince and cheese pie as this is his favourite.
THE PIE CRUST
Making the pie crust is not as terrifying as it seems. Check out my post on making an easy butter pie crust here. The post shows you how to make an easy butter pie crust step by step. If you are short for time feel free to use an already made pastry pie and then just follow the recipe for the mince & cheese filling.
Prepping the mince & cheese filling is super easy. Add all of the ingredients in one large pan, cook for 15 minutes, stuff into your pie crust and pop it in the oven. There is not much wrong that can go with this recipe and you end up with such a comforting dish and fulfillment that you made it yourself.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe! This homemade mince & cheese pie is a great comfort dish and anybody can make it. If pies are a big part of your family tradition, your family will love this easy, simple and delicious pie.
