Homity Pie
Pies and Pastries

An open-baked pie containing a filling of potatoes and an onion and leek mixture, covered with cheese.

The origin of this dish is unknown, it has varously been claimed as some unknown form of the (unknown) 'Devon Pie', to originate with the Land girls of the Second World War or from Cranks Vegetarian Restaurant, which opened in London in 1961. We at Foods of England can find no written record of it by this name before 'The Good Pub Guide 1998'
