We had an overwhelming lunch with my folks at Din Tai Fung on Sunday.
By the time we headed off, it was 4.30pm and we were still feeling very full.
I was thinking, since everyone was feeling full, why don't I make a pie and we could have a light dinner. Well...not too sure exactly if this was a light meal as it consisted of potatoes...lol... :P
My kids, on the other hand, were feeling hungry. And I was hoping that they would fancy this pie.
I was wrong, this pie wasn't their cup of tea but oh well, they had been nice to me by having a slice each...hahahah!!!
I had coarsely mashed the potatoes, put some ham and sausages, topped with some mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Perhaps I could have been more generous with the ham & sausages so that my girls would definitely eat them.
So perhaps, you will be more glad to join me in this pie???
♡ Potato Ham & Sausage Pie ♡
(good for 20-cm pie pan)
65g cold butter, diced
130g plain flour
1 egg yolk
30-40 ml cold water
(up to individual preference)
90g coarsely mashed potatoes
5 mini chicken sausages, chopped
5 pieces of ham. diced
15g mozzarella cheese
15g cheddar cheese
100g whipping cream
salt & pepper to taste
1. In a mixing bowl, put in the sieved flour. Place the cold butter into the flour. Using your finger tips, rub the cold butter until resemble bread crumble. Add in the egg yolk, mix, and gradually add the water (30ml) and knead it into a soft dough. Wrap the dough in the refrigerator and allow it to rest for 30 mins.
2. Roll the dough into a circular shape, big enough to cover your pie pan. Place the rolled dough over your pan and gently fit it nicely onto the pan. Prick the dough, using a fork.
3. Bake the crust at 170C for about 10 minutes. Remove the half baked crust, allow it to cool slightly and place your ingredients onto the pie and continue to bake for another 30-35 minutes or until your pie turns golden brown in color.
Whisk the eggs together with the whipping cream, and pour it over after placing the ingredients onto the pie.
