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 can be typically eaten as take-aways but are a homemade staple in many homes. Often it is served with red cabbage.

In 2004, ITV's The Paul O'Grady Show voted the produce of The Denby Dale Pie Company as the UK's best Meat and Potato Pie.[2]

It consists of a pastry casing containing: potato, either lamb or beef, and sometimes carrot and/or onion.[3] They can often be bought in a speciality pie shop, a type of bakery concentrating on pies, or in a chip shop.
