Sausage Leek and Cheese Pie 😋

Sausage, leek and cheese pie is nothing short of a budget banquet! The sweetness of the leeks combines with the sausages and cheese to make a pie that is delicious served hot or cold. 

The secret of this pie is balance, where no one flavour or texture is allowed to dominate; so you cheese lovers will need to hold back and use a modest amount of cheese to let the other flavours have a chance. Trust me it works.

You simply must try this!

How to Bake a Classic English Pork Pie

There are many regional versions of English pork pies and they come in several shapes and sizes. I love them all. My version is similar to the ones I grew up enjoying in my native Nottinghamshire.

Massive thanks to my dear friend Mr Paul for his generosity and kindness, his pork pie video is linked here:

Mr Paul has a wealth of knowledge on English butchery and baking, he has been a mentor and an inspiration to me over these last couple of years. 

Massive thanks also to my dear friend Bradley Bennett yet again for his generosity, kindness and support.
