Cheddar & Veg Pasties

Scrummy Cheddar & Veg Pasties from the Cook it Slowly Cookbook.

Cheddar & Veg Pasties


Leek 1, quartered lengthways and thinly sliced

Potatoes 3 medium, peeled, cut into chunky chips and then thinly sliced

Swede ½ medium, approx. 200g (7oz), peeled, cut into chunky chips and then thinly sliced

Onion 1 small, peeled and finely chopped

Chopped parsley 2 tbsp

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Shortcrust pastry 500g (1lb 2oz)

Cheddar cheese 200g (7oz), cubed

Plain flour 4 tsp

Butter 4 small knobs

Egg 1, beaten

Lettuce, cucumber and chutney to serve (optional)



Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°fan/Gas 6. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.


Mix together the leek, potatoes, swede, onion and parsley and season well.


Divide the pastry into four and roll each piece out into a circle; place a 23cm (9in) plate on top and cut around it. Brush water halfway around the edge and then pile a quarter of the vegetables into the centre.


Add the cheese, pushing some into the vegetables. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon flour on top and add a knob of butter. Bring up the edges of the pastry and press together, then crimp around the edge. Place the pasty on the baking sheet, with the crimping over towards the right-hand side, rather than right on the top. Repeat to make another three pasties.


Cut two small holes in the top of each pasty to allow steam to escape during cooking, then brush over the tops with egg.


Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/160°fan/Gas 4 and bake for a further 45 minutes to ensure the vegetables are cooked through.


Serve immediately or transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    Mmmm. …they really ARE good enough to eat!

  1. I love my dairy diary ever since my Aunt use to send it to me, and now I order it for myself (and friends too).

    I was looking at recipes online and in the diary and you usefully give nutritional values but wondered if you might start adding carb content as well as so many of us on low carb or carb counting regimes.

    I would of never thought of this before but recently diagnosed type 2 Diabetic and have switched to low carb diet to attempt to put diabetes into remission.

    Thank you.
