Oh man, just ate my first two pies! I think my next batch will be four.

It surprised me how long it took for the tops to get browned.

I used canned "White Chili" as filling. It was really good!

Thanks to all you guys for talking me into getting this gadget!

I'm defrosting some more pie crusts right now! Yum!

I find that brushing my pie top crust with an egg wash gives them a nice shiny browning finish. The kind you want to take a picture of. I also sprinkle raw sugar on it while it is wet with the egg wash.

I'm eating my first egg pie. I used White Wheat bread for the bottom crust and it worked great. The crust turned out crisy and yummy, the egg cooked perfectly with the white firm and the yolk runny.

I put a Mexican cheese mix in the bottom, then the raw egg, and topped it with some hot sauce before eating. Cooked for 6:30.

I'll be doing this many more times.

The trick is to make three other pies that you can put in the fridge or freezer. Or make breakfast and lunch plus leftovers.

You all are killing me , I keep reading this thread and have a burning desire to go buy one.... Can you use other types of "crust" as in maybe a drop of biscuit on the top?

Yes and puff pastry, no crust, toast rounds on top of a stew filling. Okay, now I have to get my Piemaker out...

Thanks for the reply :) So, I checked it out at W&S. It's really not as big as I expected (which is a good thing). I just need to think on this a bit, I am such a impulse buyer.

We were Impulse Buying, too. But it was "out of stock" for many months. When it came back in stock, we still wanted it. One of the best things we ever bought. How big did you think it was? It makes 4 individual pies.

LOL, I guess I was thinking toaster oven size when in reality it looks more like George Foreman grill size Either way, that's why I work right!

This sounds like something my guys would like to eat. Sounds like you are doing real well with your pie maker. Thanks for the yummy posts!
