Mini Bread Mince Pies in the 5 Minute Chef


Sliced bread (white or whole wheat)

Mincemeat or fruit mince filling (store-bought or homemade)

Butter or non-stick cooking spray


Preheat your 5 Minute Chef according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Use a rolling pin to flatten each slice of bread until it's thin and pliable.

Cut rounds of bread using a cookie cutter or a small glass that fits into the 5 Minute Chef plates. Each round should be slightly larger than the diameter of the cooking plates.

Lightly grease the bottom cooking plate of the 5 Minute Chef with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

Place one bread round on the bottom cooking plate of the 5 Minute Chef.

Spoon a small amount of mincemeat or fruit mince filling onto the center of the bread round, leaving a border around the edges.

Place another bread round on top to cover the filling, creating a mini pie.

Close the lid of the 5 Minute Chef and secure the latch.

Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and crispy.

Carefully remove the mini bread mince pie from the 5 Minute Chef using a spatula.

Repeat with the remaining bread rounds and filling to make more mini pies.

Enjoy your mini bread mince pies made in the 5 Minute Chef! This method offers a quick and easy way to create individual-sized treats with the convenience of a countertop cooking appliance.
