Mid-week Meal: Prize Pie Burgers

This recipe is from Alison Holst's Dollars and Sense Cookbook (very good book by the way). It's made with really basic ingredients and is so deliciously tasty.
Prize Pie Burgers
Short Pastry
Put 3 cups flour in a bowl. Grate in 200g cold butter. Rub the flour and butter wth your fingertips until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add 1 cup grated cheese. Mix in 14 tablespoons cold water or enough to make it stick together. Refrigerate for about 5 mins.

Mix together 450-500g mince, 1 packet onion soup mix, 1/4 cup tomato sauce and 1T flour.

Roll pastry into two 30cm squares. Brush one pastry sheet with a little water then arrange the mince mixture on top in 3 rows of 3.
Carefully lay the second pastry sheet on top. Press between the rows working from the middle outwards.
Cut into 9 square pies and cut a steam vent in each. Brush tops with milk or beaten egg.
Bake at 200degrees celcius for 30 minutes or until top and bottom crusts are golden. Serve warm or cold.
Here's my ones served up for dinner this week...
Can freeze for up to two weeks. If packed frozen in a lunchbox they should be thawed by lunchtime.
I had about 900g meat so I added another packet of soup mix and some extra sauce and I made twelve using the same amount of pastry.


  1. good idea, am going to try something along these lines for tonight's dinner, I'll let you know how it goes xx
