“I made this the other week and added a tin of butter beans to the sauce. It was lovely. The packet of puff pastry made enough for two pies, so one is in the freezer ready for a 'no cook' night.”

Corned beef pie

Cheap, easy to make, and great served cold for buffets or in packed lunches.

Salmon pie

“I have a vegan friend who has made this recipe without egg or cheese, using silken tofu instead – it just tastes less cheesy, but still fab.”

“Top tip for apple pies: you can get unsweetened sliced apples in a tin. Bung them in a pie dish with sugar/spices/raisins and cover with crumble or pastry and bake for 30 minutes. Very good for impromptu in-law visits.”
