    • potatoes • leek • turnip and/or swede • mixed game • shortcrust or flaky pastry • seasoning • beaten egg


    1. Chop the potatoes, leeks and turnip/swede finely and put to one side in water. Dice the game finely. Scatter flour over the work surface and roll out the pastry. Using an upturned plate as a guide, cut a circle of pastry and place the turnip, swede and leek across its centre. Season and place the game on the pastry. Top up with more potato.

    2. Dampen one inside half of the pastry with a little water and fold on to the other side. Press down firmly but gently. Double the seam to make it stronger, squeezing
    tightly between thumb and forefinger every ½in to make a pattern on the edge.

    3. Make a slit in the tops of the pasties with a knife. Place them on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, brush with beaten egg and bake in a pre-heated oven for 25 to 30 minutes at 220°C.

    4. Leave the pasties in the oven for five or so minutes with the oven door shut. Allow them to cool a bit before eating with pickles, coleslaw and beer.
