Stargazy pie (sometimes called starrey gazey pie or other variants) is a Cornish dish made of baked pilchards [a.k.a. sardines], along with eggs and potatoes, covered with a pastry crust.
Although there are a few variations with different fish being used, the unique feature of stargazy pie is fish heads (and sometimes tails) protruding through the crust, so that they appear to be gazing skyward. This allows the oils released during cooking to flow back into the pie.Gah! The phrase "oils flow back into the pie" should be outlawed.
