Cooked them 3 minutes each side.
For the buns I just tried out Texas Toast bread. Cut out.
Pre heat the pie maker.

Brush some butter onto the bun. Placed it in, butter side down into the unit. Add the patties and cheese. Top it with the the other bun. I think I just cooked it for about 10 minutes. The Texas toast was hard to use in the pie maker. It didn't want to fully close and lock. You can achieve a better result with a thinner cut of bread.

Maybe next time I'll try a regular hamburger bun and see if the results would be better. Instead of plain ol' butter, I'll add Parmesan cheese to it.

Munky.
How cool is that? I'll be trying that, very soon!

Thanks Munky!

I use "Arnold's" 12 grain bread in mine. It's large enough to just barely contain the large cutter for the bottom and the top cutter works easily.

Your right about the cutters. Do they seal up nice looking or what?

On a side note * cooking times for the burgers, before they are used in the pie maker doesn't have to be 3 minutes. Keep in mind that they will cook a little more when they are in the pie maker*

So what's going on with your corn/ flour tortillas?
I'm curious about why they worked out ok here, but not for you?

For my sake I hope the burger idea works out better for you.

Munky.

The mother ship has arrived. It just arrive at 4:55. I was sound asleep. They rang the bell and scared the daylights out of me. It is so pretty. I got the two pie maker. I love it. It is yellow and blue and will fit right on my counter top. I won't even have to put it away. I am off to skip to my kitchen. I already have the indredients out to make mac and cheese, Italian style.

Yes, the pies I make with the 12 grain bread seal very nicely and brown into a delicious crispy pie top.

I Microwaved my corn tortillas until they were soft. They, when I tried to push them into the pie mold with the former, they tore. Do you have a trick that makes them form more easily into the molds? With no tearing?

How do I communicate with the MS so that she arrives in Northern MN with my pie maker while I'm there? I have my purple crocs with me here in the States--do I have to make a 3-cornered hat out of foil, stand in an open field, and click my heels together wearing my purple crocs? Is there a secret password? Other than the foil, do I need anything else that is purple and shiny?

I spoke to the head of the MS and told him of your dilemma. He is spreading the word throughout Minn. for you to get your Mini Pie Maker for your birthday. If you notice folks there complaining about a buzzing sound in their head, you will know that they got the message.
