Preparation, cooking and serving instructions
Frozen product. Once defrosted, cook, and consume within 48 hours.
Please note these cooking instructions are merely a guide as different ovens may vary the cooking times. Feel free to cook a little longer if you feel necessary. Our cooking durations may be a little less than needed as we want to avoid any dishes being overcooked or burnt.
From frozen, preheat the oven to 150°C, place the pie in your pre heated oven and bake for 35 minutes, then turn the oven to 180°C and bake for a further 20 minutes until the top is golden brown and the sauce is starting to bubble over.
From thawed, preheat the oven to 180°C, place the pie in your pre heated oven and bake for
40 minutes until the top is golden brown.
If you want to test that the inside has warmed through, insert a metal skewer (or knife) gently into the middle and place the skewer against your lip to see if it is hot. Or if you have a temperature probe, insert the probe into the middle until it has reached 75°C. If the middle is not warm enough, place it back in the oven for another 5 minutes or until bubbling over. Once you are happy that it is cooked, remove from the oven and allow to sit for a moment so it is not too hot.
Great served with a side of green salad.
