Cheesy-Mite Pie


August 17, 2022

Nothing says Aussie like meat pies and Vegemite right?
So what’s even more Aussie then combining the two in the same pie!

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs 30 mins
  • Yields: 8 regular meat pies or 1 large family pie


Pie Filling

1kg lean beef mince

1 large onion, fine diced

1.5T Vegemite

2T tomato paste

2T instant gravy powder

To assemble Pies

2 cups grated cheese

Frozen puff pastry sheets


1Combine all pie filling ingredients into slow cooker and cook on low for 4-5hrs

2Scoop and discard any excess oil from top prior to using pie filling in pies – however use of lean mince to begin with should minimise any excess fat/oil

3Note: This recipe was cooked in a 6L slow cooker but would easily fit in a smaller one of 3.5L also

4Using a pie maker, fill puff pastry base with pie filling, top with ¼ cup grated cheese on each pie, then puff pastry on top and cook 😊

I haven’t tried that but it could work? I wouldn’t go 2T of corn flour though. Maybe 1? Seasoned with beef stock?

HI Paulene, looks so yum!! Keen to give it a go. Don’t have gravy powder in my kitchen. Can I replace it with another ingredient? Can I use chicken powder mixed with corn flour maybe? Thanks
