Banjo's Bakery Cafe's Lasagne Pie Is the Next Food Mashup You Need to Try

It layers pasta, beef mince, tomato, vegetables and cheese in a pastry case.

After introducing Australian tastebuds to the double cheeseburger pie — and Tasmanian scallop pies, bangers and mash pies, and chicken parmigiana pies, too — the team at Banjo's Bakery Cafe has launched another culinary hybrid. Pastry is a feature, as usual. This time, though, it encloses layers of pasta, beef mince, tomato, vegetables and cheese.

Yes, lasagne pies are now a real thing that exists on the bakery chain's menu. Melbourne's Pie Thief has been doing them since 2019, but now Banjo's is serving up its own version. And, yes, they're exactly what they sound like.

The aim: to satisfy your cravings when you just can't bring yourself to choose between a pie and a slice of lasagne. If you're a little indecisive when it comes to choosing what to eat in general, you're probably already a big fan of food mashups that find ways to combine two popular dishes — and you'll likely want to add this one to your must-try list.

The lasagne pies have joined Banjo's signature range, alongside the aforementioned other creative varieties. They'll be available from the company's stores from today, Wednesday, May 5, as well as via online click-and-collect orders and Uber Eats deliveries.

In NSW, you'll need to head north to Glendale to get your fix. In Victoria, stores are located in Mornington, Traralgon and Mildura. Queenslanders can pick from ten spots, including Darra, Cleveland, Park Ridge and Redcliffe, while pie-loving SA residents can hit up Glenelg — and there's 29 stores in Tasmania.

Banjo's Bakery Cafe's lasagne pie is currently on the menu at the chain's stores nationally. To find your nearest location, visit the company's website.
