Mince, Mushroom and Double Cheese Pies


I am a huge fan of a pie, I had some mushrooms that needed using up in the fridge plus some mozzarella and some vintage cheddar and a cheap packet of premium beef mince. Plus I can also give them to my partner in his lunch as there a perfect size in the texas muffin tin.

400 gram. premium beef mince
1/2 brown onion, finely diced
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp. fresh thyme
1 tsp. fresh rosemary
1 1/2 cup. mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup. Worchester sauce
1 1/2 cup. beef stock
2 tsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. cornflour + 2 tsbp. cold water = slurry
5 sheets puff pastry
1 egg, beaten for egg wash
1/2 cup. grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup. grated mozzarella


  1. Heat fry pan over medium to high heat add oil, onion and garlic cook for 3-4 minutes and add chunks of the beef mince plus salt and pepper.
  2. Leave to brown for few minutes until turning and repeating until the mince is nicely browned, this adds flavour, add in mushrooms and roughly chopped herbs.
  3. Now add stock, sugar and worchester sauce leave to simmer for 20minutes.  Make a cornflour slurry with water and stir into mince, cook out for 3 minutes, check your seasoning and set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 200 degress fan bake.
  5. Spray texas muffin tin with oil and line with puff pastry. I used a bowl as my base cutter and a smaller cup for the lid sized circle. Make these slightly bigger so you can roll the pastry over at the top.
  6. Using a 1/2 cup. measure your beef mixture and press into pastry case, repeat.
  7. Sprinkle about a 1 tsp. of cheddar and mozzarella over each pie, egg wash the pastry rim and press on lid. Pushing the pastry against the sides as your roll the pastry over at the top creating a lip.
  8. Egg wash the top and prick steam holes in the top of the pastry with a fork and a small amount of cheese for garnish.
  9. Bake for 28 minutes until pastry is puff and golden.
