There are some things you figure you will never eat again when you change to a LCHF way of eating.
Pie was one of them for us!
That is until I decided to experiment a bit.
I first tried doing some pizza type scrolls but they failed and fell into flat little parcel type things. kids thought they were ok but I wasn't at all happy with how they turned out.
The first time I tried making pies with the fathead dough I blind baked the dough thinking it would work better that way.
They were ok but by the time the insides heated up the 'pastry' was overdone making it tough and chewy.
This time I hit the motherload and they turned out beautifully.
You can do traditional microwave dough or no nuke dough to make these.
I found some cute little single pie dishes at kmart, they are non stick but I figure it isn't something I would use often like a fry pan so won't matter too much. Alternatively you can make one large family size pie in a dish of your choice.
The dough turned out quite light, held together perfectly. I made spare for lunches and they held their shape in the fridge for two days, without breaking up or getting soggy.
1 portion of the fathead dough
500gr chicken thigh diced
3 cloves garlic
1tbs chopped chives
1/2 small wheel camembert (or brie)
Finely dice onion and garlic and fry in butter or coconut oil until golden. Add chicken and fry until all cooked through. Pour in cream and simmer gently until it starts to thicken. Season with chives, S&P and any herbs you like really.
Put aside in fridge to cool mixture.
Preheat oven to 200c
While mix is cooling make your dough and roll out between baking paper to 3/4cm thickness for pie base.
Grease pie dish and line with 'pastry'. When chicken mix is cold add to pie dish and top with slices of cheese. Roll out more pastry to put on top.
Bake for approx 20min until really golden.
Let rest out of oven for a couple of minutes before serving.
Thank me later :)
