Turkey Pasties

  • Ingredients (makes 12 pasties)
  • 400g shop bought puff pastry
  • Plain flour for dusting
  • 1 egg beaten for sticking the pastry and egg washing
  • 120g cooked leftover roast turkey meat and a little skin
  • A splash of turkey gravy or good chicken stock


  1. Roll the pastry to 3mm thick, cut out disks to a diameter of approx 12cm. Place on floured tray repeat
    until you have 12. Transfer the disks to the fridge to chill.
  2. Finely chop the turkey meat, a splash of gravy to bind and then season well with salt, pepper.
  3. Place a heaped tea spoon of the filling in the center of the disk leaving a 2cm border around. Brush some egg wash around one half of the border and pull the other end over the top of the filling to meet the egg washed side.
  4. Press down and seal the pastry ensuring there are no gaps. Place the pasties on a floured non stick oven tray and bake for 15-20 minutes on 180°C until golden brown and the filling is hot. Serve straight away.
