St Patrick's Pie

"This is the pie we will be having on St patrick's day for dinner served with cabbage and lot's of gravy. However you can make it any time you like. You can put other things in it I sometimes put the cabbage on the top of the mix and just serve that with gravy. Also if you make your own pastry you can add some herbs, sage is a nice beefy one to add, the seasoning in this recipe is down to choice you may like to add more if you like things a bit more peppery. Note that cooking time does not incluede the boiling of the potatoes."

    Delicious! I made these recipe into 4 pasties, as we are preparing for a long road trip and these will be our picnic fare on the way: I made a small sample one to rate and review, and the filling is amazing, so tasty! I used Fray Bentos tinned corned beef and leftover mashed potatoes. The pastry was SO short and crumbly, it was great! I used Trex and butter for a great flavour combination and I can report that this recipe makes 4 large or 5 medium sized pasties - an alternative to a large pie. Made for PAC Spring 2010, thanks TJ for a real British classic! FT:-)


<p>Hi,&nbsp;&nbsp;I&nbsp; have three grown up kids and&nbsp;7 &nbsp;grand kids&nbsp;1&nbsp;greatgrandchild and an other on the way. I work p/t as a cleaner in a large office, and sometimes I help as tea lady and I do a bit of reception duties not a lot just a bit, I tend to cut people off in error of course.&nbsp;I have a wee dog called Molly, and is&nbsp;so so naughty, but we love her to bits even if she won't do as she is told. She is a cross between a poodle and a jack Russell and is now&nbsp;four years old. I love my garden and growing everything&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I just have a small plot, so I like things that grow well in pots, and of course cooking. I love all cook books so I cant pick one but I have one that I refer to a lot Delia Smith's complete cookery course, a good all rounder. I have discovered that I am now diabetic and have had to change my eating and cooking habits I now try to go for the healther option rather than all the cream, butter and sugar, and I have lost 32 pounds, and feel so much better. My mum and all her family were diabetic and so far I am the only one of 8 kids to get it, just my luck, but in a way it's a blessing, as I now have a healthy diet not like before stuffing my face with all sorts. my peeves are I don't like cruel or rude&nbsp;people that don't consider other peoples feelings and&nbsp;opinions, manners and a smile don't cost a penny, so why be greedy and not spread a bit of happiness about, I am quite a softy at heart but don't mess with my kids or grand kids I am&nbsp;very protective of them and would do anything for them,&nbsp;&nbsp;as I always tell my grandchildren it's nice to be nice makes you feel good and we all like that, I used to run a bakers shop and the old folks that came in were so lonely sometimes you were the only&nbsp;person that they spoke to in days or weeks so a smile and a friendly wee chat&nbsp;would make there day so if I can make one person smile in a&nbsp;day that would be great &nbsp;and I have brought my kids up to think the same and the grand kids too.I am married to my dear old man for 40 years this may and can't believe where all the years have gone, they do say time passes fast when you are having a good time so I guess I am having a good time DH said I am having a good time when I am telling him what to do, I say&nbsp;I'm just keeping him right&nbsp;so he will be happy well that my story and I am sticking to it. he he he. .&nbsp;<img src= alt= /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket />[/ <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /><img src= alt= width=300 height=132 /></p>
