I know they're not supposed to be healthy, even tho' some brands (not of the Russell variety)claim to have the Health Foundation "tick"....I love a good pie. I prefer the mince variety, not fruit mince tho - they should be banned as far as I'm concerned. I will never forget the disappointment I felt having been offered a Christmas Mince Pie, biting into it and...ew, what the hell is that? I thought, no actually I shuddered. Anyway, I digress.
Mince pies of the meat kind is my kinda pie. I even eat them cold. Yes, cold.
BUT apparently thats not as odd as the WAY I eat 'em. I confess, I take their tops off, then I eat them. I peel off the pastry, or the mashed potato top, and put it to one side. And then I eat the pie. I am told that is odd. I don't believe it, surely there must be others out there somewhere who do this? I do eat the top eventually, but only after I have devoured the rest of the pie.
How do you eat yours? I love my pies this way, they taste better. You bet.
