Can someone tell me how you must make English pies, as you can buy in the supermarket?

Do you mean pies such as steak and kidney or similar? Rough Puff Pastry, or Shortcrust or other?

I don't know how you call that. It is for one person and you can eat that as a meal. You must make it warm in oven or microwave. Here you can see a picture of it. Mostly there is meat in it. Sometimes there is also a egg in it.

I've never eaten any pie that I haven't made myself. This BBC recipe is a fairly standard one. It serves more than one, though. You ring the changes by using different fillings, eg chicken and mushroom, minced beef with carrots and onions, steak and kidney (NOT my favourite).

Mostly I make my own steak pies and prefer to make Forfar bridies or water crust mutton pies.

Here in the US, many of those types of meals are called "pot pies".

Can be chicken, turkey or beef as the main protein.

If you Google "pot pie" you will get various dough recipes and if you add the word "recipes" to the search, you'll get an assortment of chicken pot pie recipes. Here's an example.

In looking up Shepherd's pie, many came up, but most used mashed potatos as the topping.

Here's one for a steak and kidney pie...

We also have a cold pork pie with whole boiled eggs in the middle, baked in a shortcrust pastry - they are often called Gala pies.
