Helen’s Home Cooking

As Steak Pie is traditionally associated with New Year In Scotland, I have decided to put up my steak pie recipe once again. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year and look forward to your continued support and comments in 2018. Helen x

Top tip: Keep any left over pastry and make into little pizza parcels for lunch the next day.
