Ingedients:

Pastry

Use frozen puff pastry or shortcrust. If making fresh pastry, add a teaspoon of ground tumeric or annatto to give the traditional yellow colour.

Filling

300g/10 oz minced beef or chicken

1 tsp Walkerswood Jerk Marinade or

½ tsp Walkerswood Traditional Jerk Seasoning

1 onion, finely diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 – 2 tomatoes, finely diced

2 tsp breadcrumbs

1 tsp Walkerswood One Stop Sauce

 

Mix all the filling ingredients together and sauté in a little oil until cooked. Set aside and allow to cool. Lightly beat one raw egg in a cup and set aside. Defrost the pastry, roll it out, and cut out circles, about 15cm/6 in in diameter. Place a small amount of filling in the middle. Paint the edges with the egg. Fold the pastry over the filling and press the edges of the pastry together with a fork. Place the patties on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 190ºC/ 375ºF for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.

Makes approx 4 – 6 patties.
