This is my basic Homemade Pastie recipe you can make adding your own flavours or tastes in vegetables too. I use different types of mince and vegetables depending on what I have on hand. Make different sizes depending on the age of those who will eat them. Littlies will love small pasties. It's a fun way to encourage those with small appetites to try new vegetables.
500g lamb mince
1 cup of breadcrumbs
1 jar tomato relish
1 onion, peeled and diced
1 potato, peeled and diced
1/2 carrot, peeled and diced
1/2 turnip, peeled and diced
1 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp chopped parsley
frozen sheets of shortcrust pastry
1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Combine lamb, vegetables, salt, pepper and parsley.
Cut pastry into 4 circles. You can use a saucer as a guide.
Place a quarter of the mixture into the middle of each pastry round.
Brush pastry edges with egg wash, fold edges together, joining in the middle. Pinch the edges together to seal well.
Place on a lined oven tray and glaze with remaining egg wash.
Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 180 degrees and continue to cook for 35 minutes.
Serve hot with homemade tomato sauce.
