I wanted to make something for my husband to take to work for his lunches and that I could freeze. After making the Baked Bean Pinwheels I realised how easy it was to make things using puff pastry. I have only made sausage rolls or pies a few times before. Hubby loves those kinds of things and they are easy lunches. I scrolled through the Taste website for some inspiration and then I set off to make up my own recipe with what I had available in the fridge and pantry.
I also decided to try to make some mini ones for the twins to try.
Sheets of puff pastry (number depends on how many you want to make. 1 sheet makes 4 pasties.)
170gms Tomato Paste
1 medium onion
Cook mince in a fry pan till brown.
Grate carrot and zucchini, dice onion.
Add to mince. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add tomato paste and stir through.
Cut pastry with a sharp knife into four squares.
Place a spoon full of the mince mixture onto one corner of each square.
Brush some egg across each side of the pastry squares.
Fold corner to corner to make a triangle and push the sides together.
Go around the edges and press with the prongs of a fork.
Brush the tops of each pastie with egg.
Spray baking tray with cooking spray and place the pasties on to it. Cook in a preheated oven for 25 minutes (depending on your oven) or until golden.
Once done allow to cool. Enjoy now or place into a zip lock bag and freeze.
For the toddler size ones all I did differently was to cut the pastry into 9 smaller squares. The rest of the steps are the same.
I had another sheet of pastry and some left over mince and veg mix, so I also made some sausage rolls for hubby.
