  • 400g can chopped haricot beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 sausages, cooked, then sliced into rounds
  • 150g passata
  • pinch of dried oregano
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • pinch of sugar
  • 320g ready-rolled puff pastry sheet
  • 50g cheddar, grated
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • salad, to serve


  1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Combine the beans, sausages, passata, oregano and spring onions with some seasoning and the sugar. 

  2. Unroll the pastry and cut into four rectangles. Spoon the bean and sausage mixture onto one side of each rectangle, leaving a 1cm border – so you can fold the pastry like a book. Sprinkle the cheddar over the bean and sausage mixture. 

  3. Brush some egg around the edges, then fold the pastry over to enclose the filling. Seal the edges by pressing with a fork, then put on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Brush with more egg, and cut a small hole in the top of each pie for steam to escape. Will keep chilled for up to 24 hrs. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.

  4. Bake on the middle shelf for 40 mins until golden. Leave to cool for 5 mins, then serve with salad.
