    Pork pie - a traditional english pie but what would you fill it with?

    So i made a tutorial for a English classic but honestly I rarely actually put pork in mine, i generally do a curried goat filling or minted lamb.
    What would you suggest as something to try?

    Monkfich, Ling, Shark etc . . . sauce maybe a light creamy sauce or even go for a more acidic tomato-base. To please Mendip you can add peas and carrot.

    A Gala pork pie please. That's with a hard boiled egg in it.

    With these 'exotic' variations, well ok- as long as you serve it cold, and the filling is firm, not gooey- ie, it doesn't run out when sliced. Otherwise, it is basically just a generic meat pie.

    Game pie is a nice change but enjoy eating both with strong cheese and various pickles.

    Whenever I'm at home in England I can almost eat my own body weight in pork pies (especially at Christmas with all the wonderful cheese and pickles we have).

    Please don't even ask for other suggestions. It is the king of pies.

    Having just chastised hatty for suggesting other alternatives, my mum went on a pork pie bender during my summer evacuation (thanks Dom ) to the UK and got me gala pies from Marks and Spencer when I was at home.

    Passable. But see above.

    You are absolutely on the money here with pickles, one thing to add, mustard. Whole grain, dijon, english i dont care what it is, it just works. Mustard.

    Dont get me wrong, i can sink a good plateful of these healthy snacks.

    I just acquired a new 'family member' (lets not talk about that) and they dont eat pork so i feel the correct etiquette would be to offer them a reasonable alternative this (or next) christmas.

    Everything sounds good coming from a German. One of my favourite countries in the world.

    Now here's a man who clearly knows his stuff.

    Can't wait to hear your pastry recipe.

    I'm all ears.

    This is the way to do it. Original Pork or game pie, with your individual choice of accompaniment. No need to change the content, when so many sauces and dressings are available to go with it.

    I´m left wanting when game is involved, Switch.

    Always a bit of a let down.

    Pork pie all day long.

    Though, if you were going to mess around with it.

    Perhaps a prawn filling might work?

    Oi, you started it . . . Hmm, also not the best thing . . .


    Pre-pesca diet I loved pies with wild boar. My mother's side of the family is French from the area around Reims, lots of good hunting places I'm told - not interested in it myself. These people know how to eat, drink and have a good time.

    Ok, my sugestion: Wild Boar Pies.

    Oh. That's haram/not kosher as well . . . won't do for Chef's new rello

    Mix chopped prawns with a good hearty fish, add fennel . . . and/or possibly coriander. A thick, creamy sauce - perhaps leaning toward béchamel style.
