Easy Lamb Pies

Easter and roast lamb have a close association. Here is a quick and easy way to serve lamb if you don’t have the inclination to prepare a roast with all the accompaniments.

Difficulty

Prep Time

15 minutes (excludes thawing pastry)

Cooking Time

20 minutes

Serves

6

Ingredients

  • 2 x 400 g rolls frozen puff pastry, completely thawed
  • 1 box frozen SPAR Lamb Burger patties
  • SPAR Mint Jelly

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 220 °C with oven shelf in centre position. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Briefly dry pan-fry the frozen patties on each side, just to half-cook and until browned. Set aside.
  3. Unravel both pastry rolls and lengthen each one slightly using hands or a rolling pin.
  4. Cut each sheet into 3 equal broad strips.
  5. Position a cooled patty in the centre of each strip, topped with a good teaspoonful of mint jelly, and close the parcel securely as if you were wrapping a sandwich, tucking the side closures underneath and placing this way down onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Brush milk or beaten egg over and bake them for 20 minutes.

Hints & Tips

Remember to thaw the pastry well ahead of time, to enable you to assemble and bake the pies quickly.
