I'm not going to lie, Greggs is a guilty pleasure of mine. The pasties they do are dirty but good. So, yesterday when I was craving one instead of giving in I had a go at making my own - especially as I had some pastry leftover from a pie I made earlier in the week.
I was pretty impressed with these, and they are honestly so simple to make - 4 ingredients!
Recipe - makes 2
4 squares of ready rolled puff pastry - mine were about 12cm x 12cm
1/2 a tin of baked bins
3 sausages, cooked and cut in to little chunks
20g grated cheese - I used a mix of cheddar and red leicester
salt & pepper to season
milk, to brush
Preheat the oven to 190c
Cook the beans in a saucepan on a medium-high heat for about 5-7 minutes, you want the sauce to be really thick and the beans to be almost mushy.
Add the sausage chunks and season with salt and pepper.
Lay 2 squares of pastry on a baking sheet that is lined with baking paper.
Sprinkle over a little of the cheese onto each one, then split the sausage and bean mixture between the two, but be careful not to go too close to the edges.
Top with the rest of the cheese, and then slowly place the other piece of pastry on top. Press down around the edges (we don't want any leakage!) and then with a fork go around the edges pressing down further. Make three dots on the top of the pasty and brush with a little milk.
Pop in the oven for around 20 minutes until the pastry is golden.
