they are very tasty, instead of tomatoes, I added pepper, which really went well with everything else. The only problem I had, was that pastry did not seem to cook through, any suggestions? I never worked with roll out pastry before, so wasn't sure if I had to additionally roll it out? They got golden within the first 15 minutes, and I didn't want to keep them in any longer so they wouldn't burn. Please advise. Thenks

I made these to contribute to a picnic we were having at the Cricket. They went down really well with all my new and old friends and I have been invited back again! The only change I made was to buy minced chicken and mix the garlic in rather than mincing myslef.

These sound yummy. Less fat than using sausage meat too.

Incrediably easy and tasty. I didn't have any sundried toms so just threw in one ordinary tom.
