Make the most of 2011

The end of the year brings time for reflection. It seems that 2010 was a good year for pies, it is well documented that pie sales have been increasing and we here at pierate.co.uk have eaten a fair few ourselves. But that isn't going to stop me making a new year's resolution to eat more pies. Some might question whether this is sheer lunacy, I must have eaten hundreds this year will there be a risk of a pie overdose? I would say to those people not to worry, this is perfectly safe, I am a trained professional in pie eating. I will have a healthcare expert on standby and I have been preparing myself mentally for the challenge. There is a plate of salad in the fridge in case of emergency but I doubt I will be needing it.


I am properly equipped for the challenge thanks to my trusty GOURMET PIE MAKER which I received as a Christmas present from someone who I can only assume was able to read my mind. This is similar in style to a toasted sandwich maker but instead of bread you use pastry. Utilising the leftovers from Christmas I was able to fashion a couple of batches of Turkey, Bacon and Sweetcorn pies.



I can recommend Knorr Stock Pots which seemed to add a good flavour to the gravy. The pie maker did make the pastry go lovely and gooey which isn't so easy to do when just cooking a pie in the oven. I did however manage to create quite a considerable mess making these pies and burn myself. However no animals were harmed in the making of these pies. Apart from the ones that were eaten in the pies that is. Overall I was hugely happy with the way these turned out and hopefully it will help me meet my new year's resolution. Happy 2011 everyone!
