Mince Pie

Well it’s Christmas so I thought now was the perfect time to see if mince pies should really be eaten with gravy.

Not just any old mince pie, but a Sainsbury’s all butter mince pie that I had bought when a little pissed the other day.  Don’t worry – I didn’t try this at my mum’s home.

There is some logic to this as pie is made out of pastry and we all know pies and pastry suit gravy perfectly.

Just some simple (cheap £1 from Iceland) Goldenfry beef granules with it – unemployed beggars cannot be choosers.

After gravy:


I can confirm that mince pies should NOT be eaten with gravy.

Whilst it wasn’t inedible, it certainly was not enjoyable.  A complete ruination of a mince pie, a fine dessert destroyed.  My last mince pie sacrificed for research.  Sacrificed for you.

I regret my decision.  Do not put gravy with your mince pie.
