7 The Australian Bakery

Thursday, August 26, 2010

One of my favorite places to eat homey, cozy food that reminds me of home is The Australian Bakery on the Marietta Square.  They have meat pies.  And I love a good meat pie.  Love.  And it's a good thing that they fit the bill perfectly.  I stopped by the other day to get ballet tights for E from the dance store just next to the bakery, and got three pies - steak & onion, steak & mushroom and shepherd's pie.  Perfect comfort food.


This is the steak & onion (I love the crunch of the sesame seeds on top!)  The pastry is flaky and the filling is savory and delicious!


The shepherd's pie is basically the same as the steak and onion (and the steak and mushroom, for that matter) but has that ubiquitous creamy mashed potato crust.


And the steak & mushroom is equally satisfying - just the perfect amount of perfectly seasoned ground beef in gravy with finely minced mushrooms.


Next time I go I'm totally getting a pork pie and a sausage roll.  If you don't live in the area, you can actually order from their website!  In fact, I think I'm going to send an order to my Dad.  I just wish they made mini pies to fit in a bento!

I love meat pies, too. Have you ever tried making Carribean Chicken Crescent Sandwiches? To die for!!!! The recipe actually won a Pillsbury Bakeoff...what's that? $100,000, I think. They rock! And you could make them fit into a bento, I think. If you don't have the recipe, I can send it.

I found something I think both of us will want to try.
Mini Pies! You can make them in Jars or mini muffin tins! Do I sense perfect for bento? You even have the mini cookie cutters for the crust I bet! And since the jars are freezable I think it would be cute to have a portable quiche for breakfast, just throw in the oven to bake!

Slushy, I haven't ever made them, but I've had a frozen version from Super H recently, and they were really good! I'd so like to try my hand at making them myself, thanks for the rec!
