These beef and vegie pot pies are easy to make using everyday ingredients you probably already have in your pantry and freezer.
They are a great week-night meal for a busy family.
I have an old recipe book, one of those little soft cover books that you buy for $2.95 at the supermarket check out, it’s called ‘Tasty Mince Recipes’, and it’s great.
One of the pages in that recipe book is covered in stains and barely readable in places where the page has been stuck together with various cooking residue and then ripped apart again. The recipe on that page is a for a basic meat pie and the filth and stickiness is a sure sign that is a recipe I have cooked again and again.
Over the years I’ve played around with the original recipe and modified it to fit our family’s tastes and to make it quick and easy to make and I turned it into a simple beef and veggie pot pie recipe.
This easy family dinner recipe uses simple ingredients to make this an easy meal to prepare. It uses frozen veggies, frozen puff pastry so there is no veggie chopping to do, and no pastry to make! You can use a and a tin of red lentils or you can cook your own lentils in the microwave quickly and easily – just cover with water and cook till they are soft and light in colour.
Plus you can make the filling for these pies in advance and freeze it so all you need to do is defrost, fill your ramekins and pop and pastry lid on the top.

These look great Kate. My kids would love the individual serve idea too. How do you find the plugin. I have downloaded it, but am hesitant to rely on a plugin in case there comes compatibility issues down the track. Looks good though.
I’ve only just played with it today… was a bit fiddly to get it to look how I wanted it, and I don’t like that I have to switch to visual mode to edit the recipe in my post… but will see how it goes. I want to have a play with it on my test blog at some stage and see what happens when I disable the plugin… so will let you know :)
Great recipe Kate….i think i actually have that same book lol! I like to add lentils too…love your initials idea though…going to poach that one! Your recipe plug in looks great…how very fancy!!! shall try to print tomorrow as the twins are asleep at the moment and our printer could wake the dead i believe!i have come to realise that i add worcestershire sauce to just about everything i make with mince…love that product!
BTW…could you point me in the direction of your printable meal planner you mentioned? I’m sure i have seen it before but can’t seem to find it now….i know it is probably very easy to find…sorry!!!
Oh yes I forgot that we add lentils… we add lentils to almost everything! LOL

This is a wonderful idea! I’ve never thought of making individual pies for my kids, but I think they’d be more likely to eat them this way. Thank you :)
