Recipe: Savoury Pie

This is a great little recipe for a tasty meal you can throw into the cooler for one of those summer day trips. Once again, it's a very old British recipe that has been brought up to date.

If you search the Internet for "Savoury Pie" you will find a lot of recipes. I found many that used the word "savoury (or "savory") as an adjective. That means there are hundreds of pies that have savoury, rather than sweet ingredients.

In this recipe the word savoury is used as a noun. "Savoury Pie" meant a specific style of pie to my grandmother and to other cooks of her time. Ok, English grammar lesson over, here is how to make it:

  • 1 lean cooked chicken breast
  • 1 slice lean cooked bacon (e.g. Blighty's Ayrshire Bacon)
  • Half an onion, chopped and lightly browned
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • Half a cup of cooked macaroni
  • Salt, pepper, nutmeg
  • Half a cup of thick white sauce (e.g. Colman's Savoury White)
  • Gelatine
  • 1 nine inch pie shell

  • Mix and finely chop the chicken, bacon, onion, parsley and macaroni
  • Season with salt, pepper and a little nutmeg
  • Add enough gelatine to the white sauce to set it (see instructions on gelatine pack)
  • Stir the chopped ingredients into the white sauce
  • Lightly pre-bake the pastry shell then pour the pie mix into the shell
  • Bake at 400F until the top begins to brown
  • Cool and serve with your favourite salad
How Good Is It?

To be honest, I don't know. As I post this recipe to the blog my savoury pie is still cooling in the fridge. But I promise you this; I am going to eat it for my supper tonight with some potato salad.

I'll add a comment to this post to let you know how good it is. It would really encourage me to carry on posting these recipes if you would add your comment (use the link at the bottom of this post) if you try this recipe. You can add your comment anonymously if you wish. Thanks.

  1. Ok I ate some of my pie for supper last night and it was indeed very savoury and tasty. For my personal preferences, a little more pepper and maybe a bit of garlic would really make this a great dish.
