British Pie Week

British Pie Week

Serves: 6, Prepare in: , Cook in:

Happy British Pie week everyone! Any week that's called 'Pie Week' definitely holds the full potential to be the best week of the year for us. Since the weather here in Yorkshire has been incredibly snowy lately, we've been enjoying hot pork pies with a delicious warm side; it's the ultimate treat to warm you through after your toes have been frozen in your wellies!

  •  10 yukon gold potatoes
  • 8 cloves of garlic
  • 226g Sour cream
  • 226g cream cheese
  • 64g butter
  • Chopped chive and paprika to garnish – these are optional so you can swap these out for your favourites!
1. Grab your potatoes, a knife and a chopping board and chunk the potatoes into quarters
2. Drop the potatoes into a large pot of salted water
3. Add in the peeled garlic cloves
4. Boil until the potatoes are tender, then take off the hob and drain
5. Add in the sour cream, butter and cream cheese, mix and then grab a potato masher and manually mash the potatoes
6. Pop the mixture into an oven proof dish – preferably a casserole dish so that there’s an even layer
7. Garnish, then bake in the oven at 200 degrees for around 20 minutes until the top has browned
8. Remove from the oven and serve!


What are you eating with your pies during British Pie Week? Remember: when your potatoes are nearly ready, make sure to take your pork pie out of the packaging and pop it on a shallow baking tray, warming for around 20 minutes until it’s piping hot throughout.

Serve with vegetables – we’re recommend asparagus, broccoli and maybe some garden peas too. We’d also be tempted to serve with some thick gravy drizzled over the pie, veg and potatoes; what a mouth watering thought! There’s nothing quite like a comfort meal at the end of a chilly day – remember if you’ve made this recipe to tag us on social media so we can see your delicious creations!

So Happy British Pie week – we hope you’ve had a pie filled week! Remember to check our recipes section to see if you’ve missed any delicious recipes to try this week!
