British Pie Week

It's British Pie Week this week.
You can find more info on the JUS-ROL website along with lots of pie ideas.
At Skylark we have "pie of the day" on our menu so this week we are embracing British Pie Week with lots of different flavoured pies.
We began our week with CHICKEN, MUSHROOM, WHITE WINE AND STILTON pie, followed by BEEF IN RED WINE pie.
Today i chose something a little different from "THE HAIRY BIKERS PERFECT PIES book that i got for christmas. This is a brilliant book and i would definately recommend it. HAM AND LEEK POTATO TOPPED PIE.

All you need is shortcrust pastry, potatoes,leeks,ham, double cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg

Roll out your pastry and line your pie tin.

Peel and slice the potatoes then arrange a layer on the base of the pie case.

Top the potatoes with some chopped ham and cooked leeks. Add another layer of sliced potatoes.

Season your cream with salt, pepper and nutmeg and pour into your pie.

Place on a baking tray.
Bake in the oven 180 deg/160 deg fan oven/gas mark 5
for approx 45 mins until golden brown and cooked through.

Leave to stand for 10 mins to allow the cream to set more.
