How good is a cheap no-name pie?

It's not so much so how good the pie is, it's what you do with it!

Take the cheap plain label pie. Cook it for the prescribed time, then take it out of the oven, take the top off and add cheese and bacon...mmmm!

What modifications do you make to pies before you eat them (excluding adding sauce)?

Well, I musta been a South Australian in a past life, 'coz I reckon you can't beat a pie floater.  More a wintertime thing though...

Hmm ... try taking said no-name pies out of freezer ... thaw them enough not to make them kitchen-bench-warmed ... steam up some spuds, mash them with a little butter, salt, pepper and maybe a few small parsley leaves chopped finely ... whack on top of the meat part ... stick the lid back on and THEN throw it in the oven for 10 to 15 mins!

Some no-name ones are OK. The rest you should just open up, scrape out the gravy and crushed bone chips and fill them yourself. The innards you can use as the basis for a savoury mince recipe - which, when filled out with mushrooms, pineapple and mixed veg, is a rather nice thing to spread on toast for lunch.

I find the larger the available supply of beer, and the later the pie is eaten the better it is. Um ... and BBQ sauce.

Can't beat a good pie, a quick and easy feed. The local franchise of the Beechworth Bakery make a great Ned Kelly pie (Simply a plain pie with cheese, egg and bacon on top).

Dammit....now I'm hungry and have no pies!.  Sad

Gotta have parsley.

Yep, a maggotbag is a good feed even with veges & an egg on the side & a can or two of Victoria Bitter to make it flow easier.

I only have fruit mince pies in my freezer. DAMN!

I have two rather expensive Herbert Adams Chunky Steak pies in my fridge.  I got them about a month ago, and every time I feel like a pie, I open the door, look at them, then drive to the local bakery to get myself a real pie for about 60% of what I paid for those ones...

They're probably no good any more then...

Fed them to the crows. If it poisons them so much the better.

Sure, they've had a run on premierships in recent years, but I hardly think that warrants killing them!

I have had home made Cornish Pasties, the really chunky pastie as well. I suppose that it counts, just.

Anyone else have the luxury of a 24 hour bakery in their area? I've got one. Been known to have the 0430 visit after a night at the Casino.  Laughing

Well, a general lack of cash in the post Christmas wasteland that is my wallet forced me to eat the freezer pies for lunch.  The verdict?  Not bad ... not bad at all.  I have yet to determine if it was my two stage cooking (microwave, followed by oven) technique that resulted in the base being a little hard, but at this stage I am happy to accept blame for said crustal inconsistencies.  Certainly there is scope for future exports of pies and pie-related products from the Herbert Adams to the Republic of Philbert

How funny I am actually Herbert Adams Great Granddaughter. My father was George Adams.
I would love to be in touch with Patties to see how things are made now. I've got photos of one of Herbert's first Canberra bakeries opening, and my dad in the bakeries back in the day! Cake Alley!

Glad they were bought out, and that I bought shares in them at the right time.

In at $1.09, out at $1.68 a few week later.

There's a guy at the Violet Town Market, comes from the Yackandandah Bakery, so he regularly comes a long way, he sells a variety of pies. While these are not "no name" and they are expensive, there is some fabulos ones in the line up. My two favorites being "Lamb and mint" and "Pepper steak", Chuck in some mashed potatoes, peas and gravy, nice..............................

He, the guy from Yackandandah, does quite well at the market, his pies being WELL known as being excellent..

They lost their last game of 2016 by a solitary point, that was enough of a "do-ing" for me...

Try an outfit in Block Place, Melbourne CBD, called Dinkum Pies. A great assortment of pie fillings, brilliant pasties etc., all made on the premises. Most importantly,they're served at a temperature such that you can eat them comfortably immediately, rather than either waiting for them to cool, or eating at once and cooking your tongue medium rare.
