What is packet savoury mince? Is that the continental brand of likes?

As in chicken fillets and chicken mince? Sure I guess so
Would need much less time though 🙂

I’ve made this recipe several times using an adaption each time. Eg I didn’t have savoury mince packet so I threw in some beef stock cubes , I forgot to get the mince out to defrost so I just used steak.
This is a huge family favourite and on our regular meals list!
I make the filling the day before or overnight, then make pies the night we’re eating. Quick easy dinner 🙂 love it!

Just use however much you’d need to put a small amount on top of each pie. I’d think 2-3 cups at the most in total?

Sooo yummy. We added some Vegemite instead of the savory mince packets.

They are like a meal base packet/flavour pack that is used normally as a base to make savoury mince

I don’t know what you mean by savory mince packets.
