Who doesn’t love mini meat pies? They are so quick and easy to make at home.

I use puff pastry for both the base and lids to these, however you can use shortcrust for the bases and puff pastry for the lids. I use store bought pastry but your EDC has great recipes for these.

I don’t add vegetables to this mixture as I serve these with a side of salad or steamed vegetables. Peas would be a lovely additional to the mince mixture.
