Maketu Pies

I spied the Maketu Pie shelf in the deli section at the supermarket the other day so I bought 2 of their mussel pies.

“Kiwi mussels cooked in a beautiful creamy cheese and parsley sauce then encased in our handmade, flakey golden pastry.”

I feel like I’m a late bloomer when it comes to these pies. The few people I’ve spoke to all said they love Maketu Pies.

I popped these in the oven and served with a simple green salad with tinned beetroot slices.

I really enjoyed this pie. Full of flavour without all the salt. Store bought pies often have so much salt in them you can’t taste anything else. I guess it’s just as well because sometimes the ingredients in pies aren’t things you want to be tasting. I like the fact that these pies have a very short shelf life. As mussels should be. I’ll be buying these again for an easy quick dinner. I actually think the 2 for $6 “special” is their permanent pricing.

  1. I must be one of those few who never buys pies, maybe is a Kiwi thing… I do make them sometimes though, but always big family size pies ;-).

      It is a kiwi thing. I try not to buy family size pies because we have a tendency to split it between 2. But if there were more than 2 of you, family pies are the way to go!
