This was lovely with mashed potato and the gravy. The mushy peas weren’t that much chop.

Ingredients
  • 2 Herbert Adams Chicken and Leek Pies (Frozen)
  • 1 cup Gravox™ instant gravy
  • 1 packet Birds Eye Instant mashed Potato
  • 1/2 cup Coles frozen peas
Instructions
  1. Remove the frozen pies from the cardboard packaging and place into an oven that has been heated to 200 °C. Cook for 40 minutes.

  2. Cook the frozen peas in a microwave oven for about 5 minutes and mash with a fork. 

  3. Cook the mashed potato in the microwave oven for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

  4. Make the gravy as per the instructions on the tin.

  5. When the pies are cooked, place the mashed potatoes into the bottom of a bowl. Place a pie on top of the mashed potato. Pour the gravy around the pie and cover the mashed potato. Add the semi-mushy peas on top. 

  6. Shoot a photograph and then eat the pie, when that has gone, add the second pie into the gravy and mashed potato goodness. Then eat everything.

  7. Phaff about preparing podcasts for the other blog and then write the recipe and wash the dishes. 

  8. Write a blog post and hope that anyone who actually reads the recipe will share it on social media.

  9. Post a photograph and a brief description into the new Facebook Cooking meals for one group that I've started.

  1. What a processed meal but what a delicious meal! Treat for the weekend and a hearty, warm one for winter. Can never go wrong with a pie this time of the year 😀 Love the water spout capture – beautifully done. The fountain was probably saying hi to you 😀

    1. Thanks Sarah, Adelaide is regarded as the home of the pie floater but it’s become popular throughout Australia.

  2. Phaff….I like that almost as much as Piffle!!! I love frozen pies, but don’t think I can add more carbs with the island and gravy stuff. Why do you mush the peas???????
