Grandma’s Minced Meat Pies

22 Cut open on a plate

The idea for today’s recipe comes from my Mother. She was telling me about the minced meat pies that her Mother used to make. She didn’t have the original recipe, so I made this one up inspired by what my Mother could recall. She told me that they:

  • Were individual pies – ACHIEVED
  • Made with minced meat and onions – ACHIEVED
  • and nothing else – NOT ACHIEVED
  • Were moist pies, not dry at all – ACHIEVED

Sorry Mum, but I just couldn’t resist adding in a few extra ingredients. In some cases I can use the excuse that I had them growing in the garden and just wanted to use them up, but other items I went out of my way to buy…….sorry.

My Grandparents had a walled garden at the back of their house. My Grandmother would open the back door of a morning and feed “her” birds. She had all manner of birds come and visit her, to sample her breadcrumbs or small pieces of cheese. She seemed to have a special way with the birds, but then again she was of course a witch.
