It’s Friday and that means one thing: it’s PIE DAY!

Kirste is on a mission to find out the best, most creative concoctions that she can create in her Kmart Pie Maker. This all started a few months ago when Kmart debuted their incredibly cheap Pie Maker and Kirste fell head over heels in love with it. Each week Kirste and Mike will take suggestions from YOU, The Family, as to what they should fill the pie with. Then they’ll cook it up on The Breakfast Show and taste it!

This week’s pie filling idea comes from Janine. It’s a pretty unique twist on a common breakfast choice; porridge with banana and sultanas!

Mike’s first remarks were on presentation. “It looks fuller than the pies we’ve had in the past, so it’s actually looking really good.” Before Kirste had even cooked the pies, when the ingredients were just on the bench, Mike had a feeling it was going to be a good mix. Mike went in for his first bite… then a second bite … and then a third bite – that’s never happened before!! He was very impressed but added that a dollop of honey could have taken it to the next level.

“I’m calling it early, this is an 8/10 for me,” he said.

Can you believe that Kirste was thinking the same thing? She suggested that these pies would be perfect for breakfast on the go. “If you gave these to the kids, I bet they’d love to eat them on the way to school.” The one piece of advice she had to add was to make sure the porridge is thick, way more gluggy than you would usually eat it, but it’s good in the pie.

Who would have guessed that “porridge pie” would be at the top of the tally board… Do you have any ideas for Pie Day Friday? Text us, email us or send us a message on socials.
