HFG tip

What we did

  • We ditched the traditional pastry and used tortillas and filo pastry instead, and we used a reduced-fat cheddar (Noble), overall slashing 16g sat fat per serve. This is despite using a third more cheese in our recipe.
  • We upped the veges in our pies by slightly reducing the meat and adding mushrooms and other veges.
  • We reduced the sodium by nearly 40 per cent by not adding salt, using reduced-salt stock and not using flaky pastry. Our sauces, herbs and veges add plenty of flavour.
