I've just had a Pukka pie for dinner, and very nice it was. Chicken & mushroom, if you're interested.Malcolm Armsteen wrote: ↑Fri Jul 10, 2020 8:02 pmThey're not really pies; they are a casserole with a pastry lid, as opposed to say a Pukka Pie, which is a proper pie. The filling is the same as we used to get in tinned beef casserole, with quite a lot of thick gravy and quite not a lot of meat. The pastry is flaky, OK on top, but tends not to cook on the bottom.
My father in law (on his own, in his 80s) used to steam one over a pan of potatoes and chuck away the lid.
Good save, there! (Close...)
