Cheesy-Mite Pies

Nothing says Aussie like meat pies and vegemite right? 
So what’s even more Aussie then combining the two in the same pie! 
Just a spoonful of vegemite during the cooking gives the hint of that traditional flavour then topped with melted cheese in a pie they are the perfect cheesy-mite meal 😊
