Lol.

Im not sure about the idea of a full english breakfast in a pie...it just seems erm...wrong somehow..:huh: 

My missus makes the best Shepherds Pie in the entire  universe though..proper lovely stuff it is too with top quality mince from the butchers..(we absolutely refuse to buy meat from the supermarket in our household)

For some reason I can't seem to get enough Toad In The Hole recently though.. and no,that's not a euphemism by the way but then again Toad In The Hole isn't really a pie anyway.. .it just pretends to be one...sort of...:lol:

The best thing about the British Breakfast in A Pie is that you just know some stupid f*** is going to buy one and eat it. One born every minute. As for pork pies - I knew someone who's mate worked in a pork pie factory ....  (i won't spoil anyone's pork pie dreams by going any further). :)

Melton Mowbray is just up the road from me - the home of Pork Pies. There are a few villages nearby who also make award winning pies- Colston Bassett and Cropwell Bishop.

Once had a full English breakfast and a portion of chips on a 12" oven bottom muffin. That took some eating I can tell you.

I can imagine - you're not from Stoke are you? I was just wondering about the "chips on the side".

That sounds like something I should try in the next week or so before I have my op Steve and  have to go on a healthy diet.

Not a Stokie . From Widnes originally but have lived in sunny Manchester for the last 17 years. The breakfast with chips on a 12" oven bottom muffin was when i was a rough tough construction worker and hadn't been a nighter over the weekend.

Surely a pie is just a second best alternative for a pastie?

Mind you, when I lived in Cornwall I got involved in the inter generational feuds about where the crimp should be - it should be on the top not on the side, and I’ll fight anyone who says differently.

when my son was at uclan in preston i used to go to a pie shop on the way in from the motorway, lots of terraced houses about the area as i recall, very sparse just the ovens and a counter .....always a long wait outside 12 saturday morning,( i timed my visits from gloucester to include said shop.} all the staff appeared to be grumpy pensioners who were staggered when i asked for a dozen mixed variety of pies in a west country accent...:ohmy:..on one visit i bought a pie each for 2 lads blagging freebies and was roundly abused by my fellow customers for helping lazy young dossers:g:good socialist northern sentiments on show there  "i have to  bloody work for a living "....there was another shop further on near town , great pies but not quite as good as the authentic 1960s short crusters upt 'road.......ez .

3.5 to cook the lamb shanks. 3.5 to reduce the cooking liquor the shanks cooked in. Meanwhile make mash from baked potatoes. 

I lf you wanna be pedantic and add time leave it all to cool and re heat for 40 mins .

if you have a spare Sunday and a case of beer / wine then get through it’s a nice way to cook.

Yeah have to agree with Twoshoes' comment.That sounds absolutely delicious and well worth the effort, J.

Plus it's always a good excuse to have a case of beer to hand too !

Post a photo next time you make it ,mate !
