Pies - I thaw the pies then microwave them for 2 minutes for two pies. Then into a toaster oven for around 12 or so minutes until they are lightly brown and also crispy.

I like the pies oven baked, takes longer but tastes better.

But, by the time they are heated through, the pastry is a bit burnt and rather dry. That's why I heat them in the MW first.

Must have the oven on the wrong setting.

And sorry it was $12.90 for tiger chips and drink

I would have bought it for $12.50 but not for $12.90. Then I suppose the sauce is extra too.

What type?

I’m not sure to be honest, probably Aldi chunky to their chicken and vegetable, I’m in charge of soaking the peas while I try to get some work done, but post here instead.

Don’t think Harry charges for sauce.

No. 😊 If I had the oven on very hot (around 200 deg), the pie would burn before it was hot in the centre. If it was on slow (less than 150 deg) the pastry would dry out too much. I could put it in on moderate (around 175 deg) for a fairly extended period, but it would take much longer (and use much more electricity:classic_angry:) than my method (2 min MW for 2 pies then 10-12 min toaster oven). The pie is hot right through but not burnt or dried out.

 

Tonight is also pie night in our house. 😊

They would be wise to include it into the meal deal.

I do not like to reheat pies for lunch.

 

just wander a couple hundred metres down the road to the pie shop — hot and fresh.

I don’t qualify yet, so probably not.

At Harry's you add the sauce yourself from bottles on the counter.
