An iconic Aussie treat, that I have just never been into.
Perhaps it stems from my lack of interest in gravy, or perhaps the lack of good meat (generally) in the pie itself
Instead, you’ll find me ordering a sausage roll when we stop at the Bakery for lunch. Or, even better, a vegetable-packed pasty.
Recently, with a view to not letting my freezer hoard of puff pastry get out of hand again, I decided to make some pasties at home. My version ended up quite different to the usual variety though (and I suspect far more indulgent). For the flaky pastry was filled with creamy potato, mustard and camembert cheese.
I made large versions on this occasion, but think they would also work well as smaller ‘finger food’ for a party or special event.
You can keep your meat pies. I’ll take these pasties any day!
