Scotch pies for #bestpie by @rebeccabe

in bestpies •  2 months ago

I went to the supermarket yesterday and spotted these Scotch pies and remembered @rebeccabe @sndbox inspired post on doing something different. I have never tried these pies and so I bought some.

They are precooked so you just throw them in the microwave and one minute later they are piping hot and ready to eat.

They were OK but I wouldn't consider them the #bestpie in the world. They are a very old pie (not the ones I bought) and were probably eaten by workers down a mine or somewhere equally awful.

Having done a little research on them I can tell you that they are made with short crust pastry and the filling is made with mutton and herbs.

Best eaten with mushy peas and or gravy. Neither of which I had to hand so didn't get the full experience. It was just a bit of fun and I tried something new.

What have you done new recently?

Looks like a little bit like "Hackfleisch in Blätterteig" (Minced meat in puff pastry) which is often eaten here. But we are using pork or beef or mixed meat.

They are very popular here as are most pies and savory pastries. They and we must have a lot in common ha ha.

Glad you enjoyed my pies :-) Trying something new is nice if you get the chance. :-)

Very nice different post. Thanks for shareing

It's fun to mix things up a bit now and again. Do you agree?

I got a randomly infected foot, which is new and painful and I don't recommend it to anyone - although as I don't how it happened (no obvious skin damage to the doctor) I don't know how you would avoid it either.

Pork Pies and mushy peas with mint sauce is just he best, these scotch pies look a good second I would not mind trying them. Good find!

That's a very randomly different comment @c0ff33a and so appropriate for this what have you done 'new' lately. Hope to avoid the infected foot virus :-) That's something new I'll pass on ha ha. See what I did there?

Pork pies and mint sauce sounds pretty out there buddy ha ha

I hope your foot recovers nicely and quickly. Infections are not fun and we need shoes.
