Obviously these have nothing to do with the famous Greggs pasty bakes, but while in the Coronavirus lockdown and with all this spare time on our hands AND to cap it all off, Greggs being closed because of the lockdown too, these beauties make GREAT substitutes!
My daughter Leoni made these first, I’m not gonna lie….and after seeing her photos (because everyone shares photos of their food, right?) I decided I simply had to make them too.
They’re not really a recipe as such as they’re so unbelievably easy to make! Do try them though, they’re DELISH.
You’ll need one ready rolled sheet of puff pastry, one 405g tin of baked beans with sausages, one egg and a few thin slices of cheddar cheese sliced from a block.
Place the pastry rolled out in front of you. Slice into 3 equal lengths.
Beat the egg and with a brush paint all around the edges of each rectangle.
Place one third of the tin of beans and sausages one one half of the rectangles and put a couple of thins slices of cheddar on top.
Fold the pastry over the filling to make a square, crimp all around the 3 open edges with a fork and brush with the remaining egg.
Place on a non stick baking sheet and cook at 180 deg. C for about 20-25 minutes until golden, the pastry is cooked through and the cheese is all melty and stringy.
At least try and wait for the cheese to cool down a bit before diving in. 😉
