  • 500g (1lb) Packet pre-made puff pastry
  • 1 Egg and a splash of milk to glaze pastry

Method

Preparation

Pre-heat oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4.

1

Heat oil in a small saucepan. Add the onions and cook gently until soft, but not browned.

2

When soft add brown sugar, mix together and heat through to allow sugar to caramelise the onions. Allow to cool slightly.

3

Roll out pastry and line 12 fairy cake patty tins with pastry.

4

Mix together the sausage meat and onions, and place a small spoonful of the mixture into each pastry case. Cut out 12 lids (re-roll if you need to), brush a little water on the edges of each lid and place damp edge down onto the mixture. Press to seal edges and decorate if you wish.

5

Use a knife to make a small air hole in the top and brush with egg and milk glaze.

6

Place in a pre-heated oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes until risen and golden – Can also make as tarts and leave off the lids!

Serving Suggestions
