Love Your Leftovers

Don't throw those leftovers away - 
make them into pasties, for a packed lunch or a picnic in the park.

I made Ham & Pea Pasties, but you could use anything you have leftover - 
curry, Sunday lunch, chicken in sauce, cauliflower cheese...

I used ready made shortcrust pastry.
Roll the pastry out and use a small saucer to cut out rounds.
Place a spoonful of your filling into each round, wet the edges with water, then fold over and pinch together.
Mark the edges with the back of a fork and brush all over with beaten egg.
Bake in a pre-heated oven (200C/180Fan) for 20 - 30 mins, until cooked and golden.

You can even make these sweet, by using fruit or jam as a filling and sprinkling caster sugar over them before baking.
