Cheesy sausage & bean pies
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Bake these pies for an after-school dinner the whole family will love. Shop-bought pastry makes them quick and easy to prepare, and you can use canned beans from the back of the storecupboard
- STEP 1
Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Combine the beans, sausages, passata, oregano and spring onions with some seasoning and the sugar.
- STEP 2
Unroll the pastry and cut into four rectangles. Spoon the bean and sausage mixture onto one side of each rectangle, leaving a 1cm border – so you can fold the pastry like a book. Sprinkle the cheddar over the bean and sausage mixture.
- STEP 3
Brush some egg around the edges, then fold the pastry over to enclose the filling. Seal the edges by pressing with a fork, then put on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Brush with more egg, and cut a small hole in the top of each pie for steam to escape. Will keep chilled for up to 24 hrs. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
- STEP 4
Bake on the middle shelf for 40 mins until golden. Leave to cool for 5 mins, then serve with salad.
