Pie: Cheese Onion & Potato
Temperature as eaten: Hot
As promised the second in my mini-series of pie reviews from Di’s Pies.
For the first review I started with the Corned Beef (Bully Beef if you’re American), Onion and Potato Pie, and what a good pie it was, very flavourful.
My second review is of the Cheese, Onion & Potato pie.
I like a good Cheese Onion & Potato every now and again, I’m not a carnivore all the time, which I guess is a good thing when thinking about a varied diet. Yeah I know, I eat quite a lot of pie, but not every day…. honest.
The pastry was again the perfect thickness to encase the contents but thin enough not to overpower a bite of the pie and drown the flavour of the cheese and onion and potato filling.
The filling was delightfully tasty, and there was plenty of it, so much in fact that some of the cheese had bubbled out of the hole in the top of the pie and cooked to a crispy golden brown colour on the lid. The cheese (a mature cheddar I believe) was I would say of a medium strength and was recognisable as melting cheese which I like. I’ve mentioned in other reviews that I’m not a fan of the searingly hot gooey paste of the pies produced by the giants of the pie industry. No, I like to be able to see and taste the cheese and the onion and the potato which I could in Di’s pie. It was seasoned well too, and by the time I’d finished I was left wondering why I don’t try more cheese based pies on my travels. I’d really enjoyed eating this pie and I would recommend it to you too if you’re passing or live in the area.
