How to make a pie floater? A cook’s hack!

How to make a pie floater? A cook’s hack! I recently made a version of Greg’s creamy caper sauce from Greg’s Kitchen. Today I made another of Greg’s creations, viz., a pie floater.

Fair enough I didn’t make the mashed potato with mine. I couldn’t be bothered cooking spuds and mashing them.

I also didn’t cook my pie in the microwave oven. I much prefer conventional oven cooked pies.

  1. Looks good Gary…I would have to have a vegetarian pie though. Thanks for the photo from Rocksalt – will have to try out that restaurant as the meal looks great especially the poached eggs.
