Cheese And Onion Pies might not be the first to spring to mind when in your local bakery, but we guarantee you won’t regret giving them a try!

But rather than heading to the shops, take to the kitchen and make these ones for yourself. They’re not only tasty, but nice and simple!


  • Pre-heat oven to 190 deg. C., 375 deg. F., Gas Mark 5. Lightly grease 4 individual pie tins and dust with a little flour.
  • Roll out the pastry on a floured surface. Using a cutter a little larger than your pie tins, cut out a base for each pie and use to line the pie dishes.
  • Grate the onion and Pilgrims Choice Mature Cheddar into a bowl. Add the mustard and a little milk and stir well. Fill the pie bases with the mixture.
  • Cut out pie tops and place on the pie dishes, making sure the edges are sealed. Pierce the top of each pie to allow the steam to escape.
  • Brush with milk and bake in the pre-heated oven for approximately 25 minutes.

Everyone likes a good pie here in the UK. We have a good few pies to try, like this Special Shepherds Pie, or this one filled with Quorn Steak, Ale And Mushroom.
