Tomato and Basil Homity Pies

A light open topped pie, great for picnic snacks or a hot buffet (I may have just eaten all 6 for dinner). G

Makes 6


112g plain flour

50g butter

1 onion

1 medium potato


4 cherry tomatoes

small bunch fresh basil


  1. Roughly dice the potato and boil until soft.
  2. Rub the butter into the flour to form breadcrumbs.
  3. Mix in some water a little at a time until it just forms a soft dough.
  4. Roll out the dough and cut into rounds, press into a greased muffin tin, then chill in the fridge.
  5. Fry off the onion.
  6. Mix together the onion, tomato, potato and basil.
  7. Spoon into the pastry cases sprinkling in cheese between spoonfuls and press down before sprinkling a pinch of cheese on top.
  8. Bake for about 25mins at 200°C until the pastry is golden.
