Meat and potato pie is a popular variety of pie eaten in England.[1] A meat and potato pie has a similar filling to a Cornish Pasty and differs from a meat pie in that its content is often minced and usually less than 50% meat. They are typically eaten as take-aways.

It consists of a pastry casing containing: potato, either lamb or beef, and sometimes carrot and/or onion.[2] They can often be bought in a speciality pie shop, a type of bakery concentrating on pies, or in a chip shop.
