Sweet Chilli Mushroom Pasty - recipe

It's been a while since I blogged a recipe, so here is a lovely, quick to make, almost storecupboard, one for you.

A Sweet Chilli & Mushroom Pasty.

As usual, no measurements, just chuck in what you think will work - honestly, it's the best way to cook!

You will need:
  • Mushrooms
  • Cheese Spread (I used Seriously Strong Sweet Chilli, but any will be good)
  • Ready to use Puff Pastry (or make your own)
  • Egg (for wash)
What you do:
  • Wash, chop and put your mushrooms in a pan with a little drop of olive oil, sunflower oil or even butter.

  • When they are cooked down and soft, drain off any excess juices.

  • Then add a good blob of cheese spread  (Philadelphia Cheese will also work)

  • Mix..... then leave to cool.

  • Meanwhile, roll out your pastry and use a side plate or saucer to cut a large circle.

  • Plop some mushroom mix just off centre.

  • Then fold over.  Add a little bit of water to the rim and press to seal.

  • Give it a brush with beaten egg and slit the top to let the steam escape while cooking.

  • Serve with mash and veg for a main meal, or eat on it's own as a snack.
