Scottish Mince Pie24 Reviews
“My mother-in-law made this pie in Scotland. It is not a sweet mince pie, but it's easy to make, and a hearty dinner. I serve boiled parsley potatoes and a nice salad with this pie. My children always ask for this pie when they come home to visit.” - by Karen Barbour

"My husband moved here to the US from Scotland 2+ years ago. Besides Indian food, he misses his traditional scottish dishes so I was very excited to try this recipe. He loved it but reminded me that ..." See morethis would actually be served with mashed potatoes and called "mince and taties" and not served as a pie. The gravy in a real scottish mince meat pie is less beefy, more peppery with a thicker consistency and looks somewhere between clear and grey not brown. Still, this hit the mark as "mince" and I think I'll serve the leftovers with some mashed potatoes! I would caution against adding salt. The boullions have enough."
"We loved this version of a popular meal. I used Bisto (tm) instead of beef boulion cubes or powder. Made a nice thick gravy. Will use this recipe over and over...." See more"
"Delicious! I did make some alterations to the dish to suit my tastes. I substituted the onion for a couple cloves of garlic. I added a tablespoon worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture. And I topped..." See more it with mashed potatoes opposed to a pie crust. It was definitely a crowd pleaser!"
