Not going to lie, lasagne in the pie maker is positively genius. Lasagne cups if you will. No fighting over corners, EVERYONE gets a nice crispy edge with these little babies!
2. Nutella doughnuts
Nutella is pretty much like the icing on the cake for ALL THINGS. The cherry on top if you will. Just when you think something has reached the peak level of awesomeness, Nutella goes and takes it up a notch. We give you Nutella doughnuts. That’s right, soft doughy cinnamon buns with a warm gooey dollop of hazelnut bread in the centre. Level up folks, LEVEL UP.

Yes mate. The ol’ pub favourite can also be turned into a sensational pie. Frankly speaking, I think the parma pie is ALL kinds of epic and could definitely catch on. Watch your back meat pie, the parma pie is comin’ for you.
5. Custard pies
Be still my beating heart. Holy Batman if there’s nothing I love more than vanilla custard, it’s probably when it’s all contained in a sweet pastry shell – AKA a custard pie. You can bet your vanilla bean paste I’ll be trying this out for myself.
6. Snow cakes

Oh my. Chocolate custard cupcakes that look worthy of the CWA stand at the local show. WHO EVEN KNEW your pie maker was capable of such beauty?
8. Samosa style pie
OK, we know the purpose of the pie maker is to make pies, BUT we love the idea of this pie. Take all that samosa potato and pea spicy goodness and turn it into a samosa style pie. Deeeeelicious AND meat free.
A tasty crowd pleaser for sure, this appliance effectively lets you make YOUR OWN TACO BOATS. Yep, tacos in the pie maker are a thing and you better keep them coming, the kids will wolf these down in no time!
