British Pie Week

March 3, 2015

I’m not quite sure if it is my northern roots or the fact that I am British but I do love a good pie (cue the chants of ‘who ate all the pies?‘). 

Higgidy believe there is nothing better than homemade, which is why they bake their pies in small batches, fill them with ingredients just like you would use in your kitchen at home and finish every one by hand. Their latest addition to the range is the  Hand Pulled Pork & Sweet Potato Pie, which is filled with British pulled pork in a rich smoky tomato sauce and is topped with a heap of roasted sweet potato mash.

Higgidy Hand Pulled Pork & Sweet Potato PieThis pie was the winning pie from the Higgidy Recipe Hunt where we asked people to submit their own pie recipe for the chance for it to be made into a Higgidy pie and stocked on shelves. This pie was a creation of blogger White Lily Green!

I can remember my Mum making pies when I was little and personally loved her steak and kidney pie with delicious puff pastry on the top… yum, yum.
