Pukka PieWhy not have a Pukka Pie with Ketchup and some french fries cooked in the air fryer
Light Crispy pastry and a hearty meat filling, who can resist a Pukka Pie. This is the UK equivalent of an aussie meat pie. Reheat at a lower temperature for longer to ensure you don't over brown the pastry and thoroughly cook the filling.
TEMP160°C or 320°F
- 1 Pukka Pie
- 2 tbsp Ketchup (Tomato Sauce) Optional
- Preheat the air fryer to 160 ° C or 320 ° F which is usually around 3 minutes depending on the air fryer.
- Place the pie into the air fryer basket leaving the pie in the foil dish.
- Cook for 12 minutes.
- For Precooked Meat Pies
- Reheating only
- Cook from defrosted
Any ideas for vegetables? Pumpkin chips come out OK and I was going to experiment with onions. Surely there must be others!!!!
If from the fridge, 12 mins is nowhere near long enough. More like 20 mins to get the inners over 73°C
I really disapprove of reheated pies where they are left in the aluminium trays- the pastry is rarely at it’s best and usually soggy.. It’s far better to remove the aluminium tray and heat without it- the pastry is far more appetising. You just have to be careful with that the base pastry doesn’t split or crack (but if it does leave it in the tray but fold the sides out of the way so they get properly heated. The base won’t be at its best but the pie will be much better than heating encased in aluminium).
I wholeheartedly agree.
