LAMB WITH HERB SEASONING

Back when this recipe was published if you didn’t want the hassle of boning the shoulder of lamb yourself you’d have had to ask your butcher to do it for you.  Now supermarkets sell them already done – that’s real progress for you…….

CHICKEN PIE

This is another recipe from the Women’s Week Let’s Go Greek supplement.  It uses fillo pastry, but you could change that to shortcrust or puff if you wanted to.  The fillo would be lighter, but the others would still make a good pie.

CORN AND POTATO PIE

The cheesy pastry base in this recipe is filled with mashed potato, bacon, spring onions, creamed corn and more cheese, which sounds like a great combination.  It doesn’t say so, but I’m assuming they mean for you to heat it hot, although cold the next day might be interesting as well.

CHEESY VEGETABLE PIE

Seems like when Mum tore this out of the Woman’s Day she missed the last few lines so has handwritten them on the bottom.  Her instructions read “other half 27cm” and “over with pastry.  200o C, 400oF – 40 mins”.  I’ll add my comments  – that this could be a hearty pie for vegetarians by simply substituting the bacon for extra vegetables.
