4 Pie Recipes To Try During Pie Week March 7, 2018
When it comes to British favourites, there are few foods more comforting (or delicious) than a good pie.
To celebrate British Pie Week we’ve selected four of our favourite pies from the HelloFresh recipe archive that are guaranteed to warm you from the inside out.
We’ve transformed this classic French dish into a much loved British favourite: pie and mash! But do not be mistaken…this is no ordinary pie and mash! A deliciously rich and warming filling tucked in with golden pastry and served alongside buttery parsley mash makes this recipe a perfect midweek showstopper. It’s hard to think of a reason why you wouldn’t fall head over heels for this dish.
Fish pie is the food equivalent of a duvet day with a mug of tea. Simple and comforting, our fish pie is brimming with creamy chunks of fish, seafood and veggies, tucked in by a crust of perfectly fluffy mash. Béchamel sauce is often used in a fish pie, but we’ve opted for a sauce that can be knocked together in minutes without losing out on flavour. This is comfort food at its very best!
What makes a pie a pie? We know some people who insist it must have a ‘pastry hat and coat’ to qualify. But what about a cottage pie? Surely that counts too, even though it’s topped with potato. And what about this cottage pie? We’ve given it a HelloFresh twist with Fajita spices and a sweet potato crown. Whether it still qualifies for official pie status, there’s no denying it’s tasty!
Mimi thinks her mum makes the absolute best cottage pie in the whole world. So, it was with trepidation that she presented this recipe for motherly approval. The twist is using sweet potato in the mash which adds more fibre and vitamins, as well as flavour. Mrs Morley gave her seal of approval so we’re sharing the recipe with you today. Enjoy!
