Making pies from scratch can be time-consuming – but it’s much easier when your hero ingredient is pre-cooked. Use any leftover bones to make a tasty stock, then dice onions, carrots, and celery using the MultiPro Express and Express Dice attachment. Cook with mushrooms and fresh herbs and your pie filling is ready to pop in a pastry casing and bake.
