Laurie--I sent PF a recipe for a polenta pizza. She's played with it to work it out for the pie maker. So you could go with a polenta crust on the bottom...or use your homemade gluten free tortillas!

Be still my heart. Cream puffs too !! I wonder if you can make Popovers too.

I was reading the other (recipes) thread, and then decided to go back and read the original. I think I need to get a Breville Pie maker too. It's funny re-reading this thread-- Princess Fiona hesitates if she should get one, then can't seem to turn it off long enough for it to cool down.

I have these questions:

Can you make a one crust pie, like a quiche? If so, is it best to put some parchement on the top?

Is it really only about 1/3 cup fillings that go in a pie? Is that enough for a serving, or does it get to be too much crust ratio?

I think using this as a new way to use up leftovers would be ideal as well as making things when you only want to make a smaller amount.

Thanks for keeping the Breville threads going.

Yes, you can make one crust pies. You don't have to put the parchment on top.

Yes, 1/3 cup is plenty...they are mini after all. We usually do leftover pies, but sometimes, we make something totally from the ground up to bake in the piemaker. Usually when I have a brainstorm.

Hiya future Brevellian,

We always have room for one more :) It's kind of like we hear you knocking and you CAN come in. I've been working all day on some newer recipes trying them out, modifying them for the pie maker. It's been a busy pie day here. Naughty!!!

Not too sure about popovers, never made one myself. But you know if the cream puff recipe worked I don't see why pops wouldn't. I was just messing around when I made those, they were absolutely perfect. You wouldn't have known they were cooked in a pie maker. If you have a recipe I'll try it out for you and get back to ya on it. Yeah I'll include all the good band and ugly's to if need be.

The 1/3 cup is the general amount. Depending on your recipe some fillings can be increased. If it's too much chances are the tops will come off. I've found that out real quick!

That was fun recruiting Princess. She's a riot. We've managed to keep this place hopping. Brevillian oath. Send subliminal messages, before we knew it more have joined us in the Mother ship.
Glad you've enjoyed the thread.

Munky.

I just bought a pouch of tuna. I haven't bought one in over a year. Cream of tuna is Son's #1 casserole favorite. I should be able to get at least two pies out of one pouch.
