Thumbs up New member and Breville mini pie user

Hi everyone, I'm so glad to find this wonderful list! I love to cook and bake and it's great to find a group of like-minded people. YAY! I just purchased a Breville mini pie baker and several mini pie tins. I'm a recent widow and learning to cook for one is a pain, I love chicken pot pies and such but really don't want to eat the same thing for a week! Hence the mini pies. And soup.
this is going to be a great group
Cheers

Hi,

First, I am sorry for your loss. 2nd, welcome to DC. 3rd, cooking for one, cooking for a downsize family, cooking for an expanding family -- is a challenge we all in some way strive to juggle and balance.

Congratulations on becoming a member of the DC Breville Personal Pie Club. Without this appearing as crass or diminish, I hope you find it bit uplifting that you may now Legally wear Purple.

I have my DC book marks open at the moment. There are 3 Breville Pie threads we add to periodic. Check them out for tips and a few recipes.

Breville's Personal Pie

Savory Mini Pies - Tips, Ideas and Recipes

Sweet Mini Pies - Tips, Ideas and Recipes

Again, welcome to DC. I hope you enjoy and contribute to the group.

Hello Ruffled and my Condolences on your loss. I, too, am a Breville Mini Pie maker and you will love it. It's nice to have someone new to get us all excited again. I think them up and Shrek, the big guy in my life, makes them. He's retired and I'm just tired Have fun, I see you have met Whiska!

Thank you for your kindness and for this site. I KNEW there had to be a group of mini pie makers out there somewhere and found you through google.
I saw your taco pie, Princess and it sounded soooo good I rushed to the store for the necessities and back home to start it. I tried both corn and flour tortillas and the corn ones are really good, but rather fragile.I made a few changes in your recipe, added a squirt of Lime juice, some Franks Red Hot sauce (because I LOVE the stuff, some fish sauce to add the ummmm and baked them open face. Stopped after the cheese was melted but before it turned oily. I have some thin aluminum sheets from costo,the kind restaurants use to wrap baked potatoes. I used that to cover the pies the first time, but decided it didn't matter. But did use your idea of foil "handles" since the pies tend to collapse, leaving me with taco turnovers. I have a pie lifter, but it doesn't work on these.
I can tell, this is the start of something goooood!
cheers

Welcome to DC! So sorry for your loss. We all love the color purple here, and the Brevillian Pie Makers are just plain crazy. Unlike the rest of us.
