The pie adventure continues with my choice of the Desperate Bikers Pie. Kylie, or at least Michael made theirs already.
I was attracted to this pie because of the cow horn decorations which seemed to me like Viking horns. Did Vikings eat pie?
I admit that this recipe was more involved than the last. First you make the filling which is a casserole of meat, veges, tomatoes and some herbs. So you start with onions and garlic and proceed in a casserole direction. It's almost a complete meal. You just need to add some green vegetable to round out the dinner.
It was about now I realised that I wasn't going to finish the pie for that evening's dinner, so had to quickly make a decision about an alternative. I had read the recipe through and started earlier than normal, but I didn't factor in cooling time for the filling.
It makes a huge amount and I don't have a 2L pie pan (watch this space) so I made 2 pies - one to freeze. (Hooray for no cooking night down the track)! I even "knocked up" (it's not what you're thinking) the pastry as per the instructions.
Then for the ..uh.. horns
And here is a hungry Viking ready to eat it. Mr8 suggested an Obelix costume might be appropriate too!
The verdict - yum! All participants liked the pie - Mr8 and DH had two pieces.
They're horns okay? No really.. they are.
