Beef N Bacon Pie

Good Morning,

Hope you are all enjoying your Super Sunday, I only got my lazy butt out of bed not that long ago, its 9:30am and I feel like I have already wasted half my day but obviously I needed a bit of a sleep in.
I have a recipe share today and these are so much better than what comes out of a packet from the supermarket - packed with flavour....and Bacon......MMMmmmm Bacon

Beef N Bacon Pies


2 tbs Oil
2 Onions, chopped
750g Steak of choice
500g Bacon, chopped
2 tbs Tomato Paste
2 cps Beef Stock
1/2 cp Peas
2 tbs Parsley
5 sheets Shortcut Pastry
3 sheets Puff Pastry
1 Egg, lightly beaten
Steamed Green Beans to serve


1. In a frying pan heat oil, cook onion, add beef and cook till browned, stir in bacon
2. Mix in tomato paste, stock and simmer for 1 hour. Allow to cool.
3. Stir in peas and parsley. Season.
4. Preheat oven to 180 degrees
5. Grease Muffin tin, cut shortcut pastry to fit and line in tin, spoon filling into rounds
6. Cut puff pastry and use as lids on the rounds, press edges together to seal, cut air vents in the tops and brush with egg
7. Bake 15-20 min, until puffed and golden. Serve hot with buttered beans

These pies are perfect for a cold winters night or to have when you watch the footy, you could even add some mash or gravy over them and they would still taste beaut.
If you make these and make any changes I would love to hear about it because I love variation - variety is the spice of life they say
Don't forget to leave me some love when you drop by and I hope your winter weekend has been a happy one

Saturday is Share Day

Good Morning and Happy Saturday,

I finally have a day off under my belt and have time for a few shares - some older ones that I haven't shared

First up is a Basic Grey POTM -

RHS of the LO with my journalling
Next share is of the projects I completed when I attended the Scrap Expo last year - I should have shared a lot earlier considering i just attended this years expo last weekend ( Oh well you can't rush these things hey?)

I did the classes that were held by Suzanne Filer, Jane Davenport, Susanne Tonga and Jane Tregenza

A Journal Cover - NY Style inspired by Suzanne Filer
An Art Journal Cover inspired by Jane Davenport
A Sweet Girly page inspired by Suzanne Tonga
and last but not least -
Inspired by the mind of Jane Tregenza
I didn't get the opportunity to do any classes this year at the expo but I still came home inspired by what was out there - hopefully i can put my tired mind into MOJO mode and get cracking on a few ideas that I have - let's hope that life doesn't get in the way of creativity.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend - thanks for dropping by and don't forget to leave me some love so I know you have stopped by
