  • Effort: easy


  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 4 rashers rindless, smoked, streaky bacon, cut into strips
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 200 g can baked beans
  • 50 g mature cheddar cheese
  • a few drops tabasco
  • 375 g rolled puff pastry
  • milk, for brushing
  • mixed salad leaves, to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7. Heat the oil in a small pan and cook the bacon, onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes until golden. Remove from the heat and mix with the baked beans and diced cheese; add Tabasco to taste.

2. Open out the pastry and cut into quarters to give four 20 x 11cm rectangles. Spoon the filling into the centre of each, then bring up the edges to enclose the filling. Press the edges together to create a seam across the centre of each pasty. Transfer to a baking sheet, brush with a little milk and bake for 12-15 minutes until puffed and golden brown.

3. Serve with salad and watch them disappear.
