  1. Cook onion in the oil for 5 mins, then brown the lamb for 2-3 mins. Stir in the stock, purée and Worcestershire sauce, bring to the boil, then simmer for 15 mins until the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat. Add the peas and season.

  2. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Quarter the pastry, then roll each piece into an 18cm square. Divide the mash between the squares and top with the mince mixture. Dampen the edges of the pastry, pull the 4 corners up so they meet in the centre, then press the edges firmly together to seal. Will freeze for up to 2 months. Defrost before baking.

  3. Transfer to a baking sheet, brush with egg and bake for 20 mins until golden.

Will definitely make these soon, but does anyone know if they are safe to freeze?? Seems like a perfect lunch box pasty :)

I made this using leftover mash from day before. Kids loved them! I got six from the recipie each big enough for an adult (well for us anyway) so had 2 for the freezer! Having the leftover mash anyway I didn't feel they too much effort to make. Will make again definately.

Found it was a lot of effort/time doing the different stages making mash, doing the meat part, doing the pastry. Should have just made a shepherds pie. Made with pork mince and felt it was bland in flavour. Should have used beef.

Even though I'm not much of a meat eater I made this for my husband and had some myself. It was great. Would definitely make this again. It was also good cold apparently.

Made this with beef. Was delicious, filling and quite easy to make. Had 1 each for tea and kept the remaining 2 for next day at lunch.

These are the most simple of things to make and taste fab! I have made them twice recently, once for friends for dinner and they were loved by all.

What is the best method for freezing these? Wrap them individually? One big Tupperware?
