Potato, leek & pancetta mini-pies (GF, DF, SF, SyF, NF, PF)

Mini-pies, rosti, muffins…the jury’s out on the name, but it’s unanimous: these are delicious! You can use sweet potatoes & red onions, *skip the cheese … the variations are endless.

Prep: about 20 mins /  Cook: 30-40 mins / Total time: 50-60 mins
Makes 9-12 mini-pies


2 medium sized potatoes – grated
1 leek – finely chopped (I like leek, you can use less)
A handful of pancetta, lardons or chopped bacon
1 medium egg, beaten
½ cup grated cheese*
Any herbs – mint, thyme, sage and chives – finely chopped, if fresh
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped or a squidge of garlic paste

Salt and pepper to taste



Preheat the oven to 180C. Grate potatoes & pat & squeeze them dry.


Brown the pancetta & add the leeks. Add in the garlic, herbs & season to taste.


Cool the pancetta & leek mix before adding to the potatoes. Add the grated cheese & mix. Add the egg & mix. Put the mix into muffin tin (do not fill to top, press down to bind ingredients together) & pop in the oven.


Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on your oven.


Serve with mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise or brown sauce!
