    This recipe will make 2 squirrel pasties.


    140g squirrel meat cut into 1cm cubes;

    100g sliced potato; 100g sliced swede; 50g diced onion; 30g smoked bacon;

    15g chopped hazelnuts; 75g butter;

    5g chopped parsley; a good pinch of salt and pepper


    Egg wash edges of pastry circles.

    Place the potato, swede, hazelnuts, parsley and seasoning on to each circle followed by the bacon, squirrel meat and, finally, the onion.

    Place butter in each pasty, then fold over the pastry and crimp the edges.

    Put the pasties on to a greaseproof baking tray, egg wash both pasties well, place in a pre-heated oven at 180C or gas mark 5.

    Bake for 45-50 minutes. The juices should start to boil and the pasties should be able to move on the tray with ease.
