British Bites: Pork Pie

There may not be a British meat pie more iconic than the pork pie. Pork and pork jelly set in a simple hot water crust—timeless, classic and elegant. Served cold as either a snack or as part of a meal, this hearty pie is a bit like a pâté en croûte, but more British. And if you've never had one, it is well worth the time to make it. More

Sunday Brunch: Cornish Pasty

Cornwall's contribution to the world of meat pastries is a simple hand-pie filled with meat and root vegetables. Although the Cornish Pasty Association has strict rules regarding what exactly can go in an official Cornish pasty (beef, turnip, potato and onion), on this side of the pond it's safe to add a few extra ingredients other than the essentials. Traditionally, this pie is meant to eat standing on a lunch break, but add a pot of tea or some strong ale and light green salad and these humble pasties can be the cornerstone of an excellent brunch.

Sunday Supper: Steak and Kidney Pie

The smell of this pie cooking will envelope your kitchen with smells that make you feel like you've just gotten in from hunting pheasant (or maybe fox), and like you're looking forward a glass of port while you wait for your supper to be served. This recipe uses all beef stock, but you could easily replace some of the stock with strong ale and get fantastic results. More

The Vegetarian Option: Tuck Shop

Tuck Shop is one of those places I can't help but love. Their pies are hearty, satisfying, and cheap enough for an everyday meal. And better yet—even though they specialize in Australian meat pies, they've made an effort to have several vegetarian options on the menu. More

Dinner Tonight: Cornbread and Beef Skillet Pie

It's not often that I have pounds of ground beef in my fridge and burgers aren't planned for dinner that evening. But I really wanted to try something new. I initially considered meatloaf, but I couldn't find the right recipe (do you have one for me?). Then I came across this recipe from Martha Stewart for a cornbread and beef skillet pie with red peppers and mushrooms. While the meat portion of the dish sounded good, I was ultimately sold on the biscuits that cooked on top. More

Sunday Brunch: Sausage and Feta Hand Pies

Since brunch is a casual, loosely defined weekend meal, it's a great time to try out savory dishes that seem too unusual, rich, or time-consuming for a weeknight dinner. Sausage and feta hand pies are just such a meal, and out-of-this-world delicious besides. They're pretty little packages with a very high crust-to-filling ratio. They may induce embarrassing but uncontrollable moans of bliss. More

Poll: What's Your Favorite Kind of Savory Pie?

Rabbit pie. Get the recipe here » [Photograph: J. Kenji Alt Lopez] Yesterday we asked you about your favorite kind of pie, but the assumption was that this meant dessert pie. Of course "pie" can mean savory too. Just think of all the members of this family: quiche, pot pie, empanada, and calzone, and basically any other meat or veggie you can wrap up with a flaky crust. Since we accept all walks of pie life, we created a second part of the pie poll for National Pie Day. Take the poll! »... More

Weekend Cook and Tell Round Up: Savory Pies

Chicken empanadas. [Photograph: Sarah @ Short Stop] Last week on the Weekend Cook and Tell challenge we asked all of you to forgo your ideas about pies being sweet and fruity confections. We wanted you to think outside the pastry box and create savory pies, quiches, emapanadas, pasties, and turnovers. Winter months proved to be the perfect time for all of you to test out your non dessert baking skills. Our responses were full of crusty and flaky goodness. Check them out, after the jump.... More
