• 500 g lean beef mince
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium golden kumara or potato, peeled and cut into 2cm dice
  • 550 g can Wattie’s Just Add Hearty Savoury Mince Simmer Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Wattie’s Tomato Sauce
  • 3 cups Wattie’s frozen Chuckwagon Corn Mix
  • 400 g block frozen flaky puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten or 1 Tbsp milk
  1. Heat a dash of oil in a lidded deep frying pan and brown the mince and onions. This is best done in 2 batches.
  2. Add the diced kumara. Pour over Wattie’s Just Add Hearty Savoury Mince Simmer Sauce. Add Wattie’s Tomato Sauce and stir to combine. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in Wattie’s frozen Chuckwagon Corn Mix and continue cooking a further 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  3. Preheat oven to 190°C (fan bake) or 210°C (conventional). Roll 2/3 of the pastry to line a 24cm diameter pie dish. Spoon in the filling. Wet the edges of the pastry. Roll out the remaining pastry and place over the filling. Trim the pastry and crimp the edges of the pastry together. Make a small cut in the top of the pie to allow the steam to be released. Brush pastry top with the beaten egg or milk. Bake for 25-30 minutes until pastry is golden and filling hot. Serve with your favourite seasonal vegetables.

I agree there is nothing nicer than a homemade pie. I have been making my own pies for many years.

If you don't have fan bake will the pie not be cooked properly on the bottom. I'm sure many people don't have fan bake ovens...I don't.

Hi Wendy, if you don’t have a fan bake function on your oven – use the conventional bake but raise the temperature by 20°C. This will ensure that the pie cooks perfectly. Enjoy!

Jenny - Watties Chuckwagon Corn is not just corn, it's a mix of peas, celery, onion and red peppers too. Goes really well in the pie.

You can put anything into a pie as long as your mix is not to runny, and yes if you put your pie in the middle part of your oven it will cook on the bottom
