Burger and Soft Cheese Puff Pies

Burger and Soft Cheese Puff Pies

Ingredients

2 tsp olive oil

4 classic Quorn burgers

500g ready rolled puff pastry

6 tbsp wholegrain mustard

120g soft cheese

1 egg, beaten 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 c/200 c fan/425 f/gas mark 7.
  2. Gently fry the burgers in the oil for a few minutes on each side until starting to brown.
  3. Cut eight circles of puff pastry. I used a small bowl which was a bit bigger than the burgers.
  4. Pop the pastry circles on a baking sheet. Top four of the pastry circles with mustard and the other four with a thick layer of soft cheese. Don't go right to the edges, leave at least 1 cm naked around the edge of each circle.
  5. Top the mustard circles with a burger then dampen around the edge with a little water.
  6. Top with a pastry lid, cheese side down and pinch the pastry all the way round to seal. Use a fork for a good seal and a nice finish.
  7. Cut a couple of slits in the top to let out any steam.
  8. You can make some decoration with the leftover pastry and stick on with a little water, but this is optional.
  9. Whisk up the egg and brush each pie with it, then bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and crisp.
  10. Serve with a baked potato and salad or with spicy potato wedges and peas.

A very quick and easy recipe, a novel twist on a burger in a bun.

We tried replacing the mustard with 4 tbsp of spicy tomato relish for a tomatoey twist.

We also suggest trying Quorn Beef Steaks in the recipe with a layer of mushroom pate and Dijon mustard for something different.
