Foodie Friday:Double potato pies

Recipe: Double Potato Pie

This is based on a recipe from the River Cottage Cookbook but i adapted it a bit so its not identical. I would say they are more like a pasty then a pie though!
  • a little oil
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 medium white potato(i used two as they were tiny!)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 500g puff pastry(either homemade or ready made)
  • a little bit of milk
Chop the potatos and put in a pan of boiling water until cooked. While they are cooking chop the onion and garlic clove and heat in a pan with the oil until softened.
Once the potatoes are cooked, mash them and then mix in the onions and garlic, leave this mixture to one side.
Roll out the pastry on a floured surface, it needs to be rolled quite thinly and then cut out circles for your pies, i used one of Sebs bowls to cut around for ours and it made 6 good sized ones. Place the pastry circles onto a greased baking tray and on one side of the circle put a headed tablespoon of the mixture. Fold other and seal the edges tightly then brush lightly with milk.
Cook in the oven(around 200C) for arond 25-30 mins, until golden brown, allow to cool a bit and serve!
As you can see, Seb had his with some baked beans and sweetcorn(you can put this inside the pies).
These were a hit, we cut Sebs into slices so he could have it as finger food and he munched away. Me and Phil enjoyed ours too.
We had alot of filling left over so kept and used it for mash the next day for Seb.

You can freeze them if you have too many, just pop into the freezer rather then in the oven.
