Meaty Mince Pies

Meaty Mince Pies

'Tis the season to be merry etc. In keeping with the season, I would like to share with you my recipe for Meaty Mince Pies (a welcome alternative to the sweet variety)

Ingredients

-Puff pastry

-1kg of pork mince

-250g homemade breadcrumbs

-A good handful of fresh finely chopped parsley

-A good handful of fresh finely chopped sage

-A good handful of fresh finely chopped rosemary

-1 egg

-Salt and coarse ground black pepper to taste

Method

Combine all the ingredients (except for the pastry) in a large mixing bowl

Roll and cut circles of pastry to fill a greased mince pie baking tray (this should be enough for 24-30 pies).

Generously fill the pies with the mince mixture

Top off each with a pastry lid

Bake in a hot oven (180-200) for around 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

Eat.
