What a lovely alternative to sausage meat. Can't wait to try it on my family and receive their praise. Buzz

Thanks for the ideas....I like the idea of apples as well! Sigh...probably going have to make two batches now aren't I! ;o)

does anyone know how to make these gluten and wheat free? So many recipes now I can't use as newly diagnosed with this intolerence. I agree red peppers would be lovely but as I love sundried toms not a problem for me just the pastry!!

I think the roasted red peppers would be great instead of or along with.

I'm with you re the sun-dried tomatoes. Skinned roasted red pepperes sound nice. Or how about apples for a twist? And I think I'd add a squeeze of lemon juice to the chicken mixture. Mushrooms would be nice -- especially porcinis!

Would ordinary tomatoes work, if you skinned and deseeded them? I dont like the sun dried ones either....

Can anyone suggest what to use instead of sun dried tomatoes in this...I know you're not supposed to admit it, but I really don't like them! :o) Ooh...just had a you think roasted red peppers would work?
