meat pie side dishes and serving ideas

Meat Pie

Meat Pie

The meat pie was a common dish on medieval menus. It comprised of a tough pastry crust filled with meat and sauce. The crust of these medieval pies was often inedible and more of a vessel and serving dish. Of course today we make our meat pies with a delicious golden crust that is as enjoyable as the contents.
Meat pies are popular all over the world, from the UK, Canada, Australia, Nigeria and more. Filling preferences may differ a bit but usually include chunks of meat and thick gravy. Because it is a hearty dish keeping the side dish lighter is often a good idea but not necessary.
