partridge pie recipe

Here's how you do it:

Pie dough
Mix flour with salt and butter into a dough. You can use a food processor for this. Form the dough into a ball, lightly floured. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 min. Turn on the oven to 175 degrees. Take dough out of the fridge and kned it for about 10 min. Roll the dough out into a circle and place it in a pie form. Prebake it in the oven for 10 min. In the meanwhile you can prepare the filling.

Clean the partridge breasts and trim them if necessary. Fry the meat in oil on a heating pan, just for a few minutes. Slice the partridges into prefered size. Whisk egg, ricotta, salt, and freshly ground pepper in a bowl. Add peas, dill, fresh spinach and lastly partridge. Pour the filling on to the baked pie dough and bake the pie for 35 minutes – or until it’s baked through.

Tip! Serve the pie with sour cream and a fresh salad.

Happy hunting & happy cooking!
