18 Savory Pies To Keep You Warm And Full This Fall


Here’s the things about pie: it’s the best. It’s whatever ingredients you can dream up, tucked inside of a large or small dough pocket. I challenge you to come up with a better idea than that but I think you will find that it is not possible.

Some of these pies are small enough to fit in your pocket, some of these pies are big enough to feed a whole brunch table, or just you for a week, all of these pies are adventures in savory pie-dom (aka what most of the people in the UK take for granted when you say “pie”). Let’s get warm and full!

  1. Gallettes are my favorite thing to make once it gets cool enough to turn on my oven. They are basically pizza without the sauce, which is the last best part of pizza anyway. Thanks for the new recipes!

  2. A pie that is a Tasmanian specialty, is Sea Scallop pie.
    It has a Short Crust pastry base with a Flakey pastry top and a filling of schallots, millpoire with garlic and lemon zest and scallops in a creamy beschemel sauce.

    It has to be my favourite but pies just can’t be beaten. These recipes are going to get a real workout even if summer’s coming here, going by the weather forecast, by the end of the week.

    • THIS PIE SOUNDS DIVINE. Googling it right now, even though I live in a sadly landlocked place…

    • Isn’t it gorgeous? There’s a version with little veggie roses on it that I am in awe of and would totally screw up.

  3. These pies all look so amazing! I can’t wait to try a few. Thank you so much for including my tomato basil pie … sharing! :)

  4. oh this is definitely a big help. As a French person I usually rotate between three types : leek pie, quiche lorraine, and onion pie (usually using a mix of yellox, red and sweet). Now i’ve got so many other options :D.
