Pie floater

The pie floater is a meal consisting of a meat pie served upside down in a dish of pea soup. It is common in South Australia, and sometimes seen in other parts of Australia. The pie floater is a popular midnight snack for drinkers and revelers.


  • 1 meat pie (commercial pies are fine)
  • 1 can pea soup


  1. Heat the Pie in an oven. A microwave will not work as well, as the pie pastry will not be crisp.
  2. Heat the pea soup separately.
  3. Place the pie upside down in the dish, and pour the pea soup around it until the dish is full.
