Use a flat ovenvare or enamel plate for this pie. The pastry crust underneath the pie is not easy to cook completely if a deep pie dish is used. Serve veal and ham plate pie cold for supper or take it on a picnic outing. Serve with fresh tomatoes or a coleslaw salad.


  • 225 g/8 oz shortcrust pastry
  • beaten egg to glaze


Divide the pastry in half and roll one piece out to a circle large enough to line a 20-cm (8-in) greased pie plate. Set aside while preparing the filling.

Cut the veal into neat very small pieces.
