    So what constitutes a pie?

    I'm fucking adamant that a pie is not a pie unless it has a pastry case and a lid. The Mrs says it only needs a lid to be a pie.

    Such stuff is fucking fighting talk.

    So whats a pie and whats not a pie?
  2. No, missus AB is correct ~ just a lid.......
  3. Just a lid, and it doesn't have to be pastry or we'd never had had cottage and shepherds pie

  7. I'm always disappointed if a pie doesn't haven case, it's just not right. It's like a burger with only the top bit of bread.
  8. Apple pie hasn't got beef in it and it's still a pie- with a lid

  9. Pizza pie doesn't have a lid.
  10. What was that white stuff in Fray Bentos pies that didn't quite deserve the description of pastry? Just underneath the crusty and dried out [read burnt] lid? Were those nasty Argentinians at it even back then or was my mother truly a shit cook?

  11. Might have horse if its from Aldi.............
  12. Fuck! I didn't think that through did I?
  13. Is that cockerney slang for apple sauce?
  14. One is a 'cased pie' the other a 'lidded pie', that was what I was taught anyway.

    The things that aren't really a pie IMO is the ones with a bit of beef/horse slurry ladled into a dish and with a pre-formed 'lid' baked on a tray and then whacked on top. A favourite of motorway services and grotty chain pubs.
