Baking Queen Catherine Leyden joins us in the AM kitchen this morning

 

Pastry

  • 225g/8oz Odlums Cream Plain Flour
  • 150g/5oz Margarine
  • 4 Tablespoons Cold Water (approx)

Filling

  • 350g/12oz Sausagemeat

  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Ketchup (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Parsley
  • Pinch of Mixed Herbs
  • Ballymaloo Relish
  • Glaze
  • Beaten Egg or Milk

 

 

Method

 

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas5. Lightly dust a flat baking sheet with flour.
  2. Make pastry by rubbing the margarine into the flour. Add sufficient water to mix to a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth. Wrap in cling film and allow to rest? while making the filling.
  3. Make the filling by mixing all the Ingredients, less the relish, together. Transfer to a floured surface and shape into a sausage like roll.
  4. Roll out the pastry into a 30cms/12" square. Place on the prepared tin. Put a spreading of the relish over the pastry. Next, put the filling down the centre of the pastry leaving about 10cms/4" either side.
  5. Cut diagonal 2½cms/4"each side of the filling. Take each strip separately and plait across the filling alternating each side.
  6. Tuck in the ends to neaten! Brush with beaten egg or milk and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until golden brown.
