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)
-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
-Salt and coarse ground black pepper to taste
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.
