    Cheese and potato pie?
    Cheese and onion pie?

    I like a potato, broccoli and cheese pie. Boiled up in some veggie stock.

    How about a butter pie? (Potato, onion, eggs, butter in a pie)

    I used to regularly chat to a very elderly gentleman in my local pub, and when his daughter came to stay with him for him for a while to care for him we became a bit friendly, and knowing that Nate didn't eat meat, she gave us a butter pie that she had made for us - she is from Blackpool and it apparently it's a bit of a thing in Lancashire.

    It was bloody delicious. Probably shortened my life by a few years, but worth it! :D

    An egg has no place in a butter pie :mad:
    When I moved to London in the 80s, I was horrified by the lack of butter pies and had to have supplies sent down.
    My mum won't eat 'em as she associates them with catholicism (they used to be know as Friday pie) and is vehemently anti-religion. :D

    Oh gosh I think the one I was given had egg in it (beaten and poured in over the spuds), I hope I've not caused any upset!

    I'm as fundamentalist as the next imam about some things but you can't insist that a pie should have pastry top, bottom, and sides. That would exclude shepherd's pies and fish pies, topless pies like bacon and egg pie, as well as close-fitting pie crusts that were cooked with the contents at some point.

    This is the problem. Someone lobbed a flaky afterthought onto a bowl of stew and passed it off as a pie.

    I do feel the need to point out that the term "Cottage Pie" is an umbrella term that refers to "any leftovers or other stuff you can bake under a potato topping". There was a period of time in the 18th century when potatoes were plentiful and cheap and wheat/flour was more expensive, so the culinary tradition of baking stuff under a potato crust instead of pastry was born.

    Traditionally speaking, in terms of the original use of the term Cottage Pie, it could involve any meat, fish, or vegetables, as long as it was topped with potato. The different terms "Shepherds Pie" and "Fish Pie" came into being quite a while later. So both Shepherds Pie and Fish Pie, and whatever vegetarian version you make of that sort of thing topped with potato, are types of Cottage Pie.

    The entire population of Preston is on the train to Euston as we speak, to shake its fist at your pie. :D

    Are butter pies easy to make? Would like to try. Are you allowed to make them outside of Lancashire?

    You caused a diplomatic incident - albeit one between Lancashire and Cheshire. I think the War of the Roses started over a disagreement about the correct ingredients in a pie. :(

    Cheese & onion, and chicken. Both shortcrust as pies should be.

    As long as you don't tell anyone, except the trusted friend who can be relied on to call an post-prandial ambulance.
    And also don't try any fancy Southern stuff, like garlic, although a pinch of nutmeg is permissible.

    In other train news, you'll be gutted to hear the legendary S&M Supplies has closed down :(

    I'm gutted - what will I snigger at when my train passes through Macclesfield now? :(

    Also - what will happen to the Cheshire kinky scene with the loss of a key supplier? Maybe friedaweed Siouxsie might be able to advise. :hmm:

    It's already gone. They had a big sign last week saying 'We still have coal', then it went altogether. :(

    I have regular awkward conversations with waiting staff about whether their pies are actually pie pies or lie pies.

    That must be upsetting for you, Mr Mow, you'll have to source your Spunk from somewhere else now :(

    That looks more like a sort of weird hybrid involving a butterscotch pie, which is an entirely different thing - but butterscotch pie shouldn't have that kind of hardened crust on top.

    The famous yellow signage on the shop is still there when I passed this morning - you need to get on to Historic England and ask - indeed demand - that it is Grade 1 listed.
