Ingredients:

Quick Flaky Pastry: https://mumsinreallife.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/flaky-pastry-1.pdf

350g 5% Fat Mince Meat

175g Swede (peeled and finely diced)

2 medium sized potatoes (peeled and finely sliced)

1 small onion finely diced

1 egg (beaten)

Seasoning

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200•C (fan).

On a floured surface, roll out the pasty and cut out some circles (I used a breakfast bowl).

Next up, mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and season well.

Spoon out the mixture onto each Pattie shaped pastry. Then smear some egg alongside each piece of pastry.

Gently fold over one half of the pastry and seal the edges.

Twist the edges over and use a fork to gently press it down (optional).

Use the rest of the egg to coat the pasties, pop onto a baking dish and cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the oven down to 160•C Fan and cook for a further 40-45 until golden brown and cooked through.
