My sister in Melbourne had a Facebook update at the start of the week, saying she had made the Pasties that are on the free Coles handout this week. It is a Curtis Stone recipe and it looks as yummy as he does!! Can I say that?? Oh well, I just did!
You just can’t get pasties anymore, and the thought of eating one was bringing back lots of childhood memories. So I made sure I picked up the recipe when I was at the shops, and set about Thermo-mixing it up! I was missing a few of his ingredients, had to change the cooking times and method, and Bingo! Bango! a new recipe is born. It was a hit with the kids and the hubby, so this one is on the winners list.

Hints & Tips
- The original Curtis Stone recipe said to drain off the cooking liquid, but I found that I didn’t really have any excess liquid, so it wasnt a problem for me. If you have too much liquid, just tip it off after step 4
- You can replace these vegies wih anything in the fridge – parsnip, pumpkin or turnips.
- I used a saucer to cut out the pastry rounds for this, which worked out to be a good size. If you go any bigger than this, it gets a bit too big.
