Pasties - Cornish or otherwise

Ever since I delivered a Thermomix to a client who wanted to make Pasties as their first meal (I stick around as a bit of a saftey net while they do their first dish) I have wanted to make them too.  It is amazing how I'm not the size of a small whale (maybe I'm a tiny one already) with the recipes I want to make.  I'm like a kid in a lolly shop, even after nearly 2 years, I see a recipe and I want to make it too!!


ANYWAY - Pasties.  How easy!!!

Almond Cheese Ball

The almond cheese ball recipe is from the Festival Cookbook.


I didn't make a ball, but a long thin log.


Ease of making.... super easy


Taste.... nice, not wow though


I would be happy to make it again, but make a few changes


HINT: it makes a log about 35cm long!  1/2 the recipe if you are not going to have a heap of people turning up


HINT: there was too much almond!  Alright, I ...

This is also from the Vegetarian cookbook - 1/3 normal bread dough, 1/3 mixed with spinach (although I didn't have any so used broccoli) and 1/3 with minced beetroot.  Then plaited.


This really was delicious - but it didn't go as well with the pea and ham soup that I made it to go with than I though.  I think, personally, that this is a bread that is good with a BBQ or as an entree or as a dipping bread - unless you had mixed the bread with ingredients of the soup ...

Rissotto Balls

Left over rissotto?


No problems.  Mix with a little of whatever yo have in the fridge.  (I only put a little cheese with mine, but  imagine adding things like...other left overs, tomato paste, frozen peas or corn, spring onions.....)


Roll balls in some egg and then breadcrumbs and lightly brown in a little butter or olive oil in a hot frypan.  You can deep fry them, or spray them with a little olive oil and cook in the fridge.

Little shepherd pies

We had some Beef Strog left - enough for one large serve, or two small ones.


I minced a few slices of bacon on 6 for a few seconds and then added a heaped teaspoon of corn flour and the leftover Beef Strog.  Again Speed 6, about 10-15 seconds.


I had already made one lot of shortcrust pastry and had rolled it out and cut out 8cm circles.  They weren't big enough really, but as the dough was a bit thick, I just squished them into the trays (Muffin p...
