I don't even want to know what I ate as a child when my mother moved back from California with me--

of course it would not be a baguette-- it would be at the very most toast.

The secret to a hedgehog baguette is this: rather than spread the butter on with a knife, you drizzle melted butter over the whole thing. Mmmmm... buttery hedgehog...

There's something dirty about a buttered hedgehog?

Man, I'm out of touch.

Americans put meat in pie too... You've never had Chicken Pot Pie?

Hmm... ask Auntie about it sometime, or maybe Swato would get it. It's all puns and dirty obscure fictional songs.

You mean you've got to be a teenager without ever eating a meat pie?
I'll bet you've never had Bovril or Marmite on toast either.
Or a grilled stoat and hedgehog baguette? (OK, I made that one up).

Next time I'll save space by putting "small spiny nocturnal insectivorous quadruped" instead.

My homemade pasties (oh, it's a grilled cheese maker, but I use puff paste.)
have been replaced by pita quesadillas.

now, that's a meat pie.

(slice whole pocket pita so it's about 80% open, fill, panfry)

I think, Qwerty, that you may have missed a key point - meat pies and fruit pies came into existence at about the same time*. Pies didn't get invented, taken to the US, and then, in 1920-something, someone said - Hey!! Let's try putting meat in!!

Doesn't work like that. For us, a pie is a pie. Seems weird to us Brits and Aussies (Canadians too? Probably not) that you've never tasted a meat pie.... :roll: How?? How?? Promise me you'll try one, sometime. :wink:
Mmm... pie....


Wait!! Heart-stopping thought!! Does this mean you've never... that no one in the US has ever... had... had.. PARTY PIES??


Oh, the shame... :cry:

the problem you have with meat pies is that you do not know what football really is. If you watched real football (as opposed to a game invented by simplifying a game invented by English public schoolboys because football was a bit complicated) you would understand that it can only be truly appreciated with one of the following in hand...

Steak and Kidney Pie
Meat and Potato Pie
Chicken Balti Pie

The sooner North America and Australasia realises that EVERYBODY else in the world knows that Association Football is the greatet game man has invented the sooner you will be able to enjoy a meat pie!
Best regards

I make empanadas, sort of the Latino version of a good old meat pie. Very tasty- I make a really good one that is vegan also, but I can cook anything for my family of carnivores.
