This is not a parody thread - but a serious (well, as serious as the benbo can get) question...

Personally, I lurve Scottish meat pies, and Jamaican patties...especially the HOT ones.

Anyone else like meat pies - have a favorite?

I've had a few bad hair pies before.

Conversely, are we counting pot pies - ala chicken and turkey - as meat pies?

I made a pretty kick ass meat pie the other day. You brown some ground turkey (Or beef or whatever) Add some BBQ sauce to it, then you take a muffin pan and stretch out some Crescent Roll dough in it, put some of the meat in it, then close ti up and bake it for like 10 minutes until the bread is brown.


They were tastier than I thought they would be.

I would certainly hope so. I love to mix a beef and turkey pot pie together.

Sure. Why the hell not. Pot pie - meat pie - anything that has meat in it...

Haggis pie.

I was at the Highland games and they were serving that one up. Not my cup of tea.

Counts: Ends in 'pie', and has meat in it

Steak and Kidney Pie is probably my favourite.


Others I like a lot:

Sausage Roll
Cornish Pastie
Steak Pie
Sausage and Bean Melt from Greggs

My sis goes over to Scotland a lot, and has had good haggis, and bad haggis. She said good haggis is - good. Bad haggis, she says, tastes very livery.

She's got 11 folks from Scotland coming to stay with her for a couple of weeks this month...I sure hope they make haggis! But as I understand it - it'll be mostly two weeks of single malt and ale....lucky bint that she is...

Liver meat pie would be the one that is not good. All meat is good. Live is the exception that makes the rule.

I so seriously want to try some haggis. But I don't want to cook it myself, I want to taste it from someone who knows how to do it.

My sis said the best she's had is up in Scotland...I think she's tried imported haggis here in the States, and said it wasn't nearly as good. Guess it's best to get it from a good restaurant on home turf.

I think it's like testicles - it's just one of those things you HAVE to eat at least once in a lifetime, just to say you've tried it.

I had a shockingly good Steak and Cranberry pie at a British restaurant once.

Meat pies = win.
