There’s more light in the mornings, the days are getting longer, and it’s like we can almost feel this electric buzz of excitement in the air. It’s a beautiful time of year to be alive, and to get motivated to make some new changes in our lives.

So it was a little crazy here over the weekend… We actually saw blue sky and felt warm sun on our faces – something we haven’t experienced in what feels like weeks around here.

Maybe spring is on the way? Or maybe it’s just a brief, balmy escape before grey clouds return and rain falls once more?

Either way, it’s enough to have us daydreaming about hot summer days that are hopefully on their way.

And I don’t know about you, but when we think summer, we think hamburgers. Like these juicy, homemade beef hamburgers that have been tricked up with a few mouth-watering Japanese flavours.

Oh yeah.

Good weather or bad, it’s time to sink your teeth into some Japanese-Style Hamburgers all of your own.

Mini Meat Pies (Australian Party Pies)

26/07/2016 (Last Updated: 25/10/2019)

Move over bakeries, Australian Mini Meat Pies are the simple homemade answers to crunchy bliss. Crispy flaky pastry meets beef gravy perfection in these tiny bites. Freeze them for make-ahead party food or a quick snack when you need them most.

Freshly baked mini meat pie on a plate

Why We Love This Recipe

Meat pies are pretty much a symbol of Australian cuisine. They’re so popular you’ll find them almost  everywhere, from bakeries to delis (corner stores), fuel stations (servos) to supermarkets galore. While you can buy them pre-made and frozen, the flavour is so much better when you make them yourself. And they’re healthier too, because you can use higher quality ingredients

The aroma of freshly baked meat pies is so mouth-wateringly good, that even though you KNOW they’re gonna be hotter than lava, you also KNOW you need to eat them. Right now just isn’t quick enough.

So, of course, every time we have mini meat pies I also end up with a burnt tongue… because in 30 years I’ve still not learned how to resist them.
