Cheesy Baked Bean Pasties

Inspiration for cooking comes from many places, and I pick up ideas wherever I see them – some of the supermarkets give away a magazine, which although, somewhat obviously, are partially a nicely presented adverts, have some great ideas for meals. Made with pizza base mix rather than pastry, I guess this is a pasty-calzone hybrid type affair, but either way this is a delicious, easy lunch or supper, and is from a recipe in and old edition of ASDA magazine.

Cheesy Baked Bean Pasties (makes 4)

  • 1 pack pizza base mix (290g) (this might be divided into two portions inside – use both)
  • 1 400g tin baked beans
  • 150g mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 50g Parmesan, grated

Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Make the dough as per the packet instructions, allowing the dough to prove as directed.

Empty the baked beans into a sieve and drain away most of the sauce. Transfer to a bowl, add the cheddar and sweet chilli sauce, and give it a good mix.

Divide the dough into 4 equal portions, and roll them into 15cm (6″) rounds. Spoon the baked bean mixture into the middle of the dough discs. Brush the edges of the dough with a little of the beaten egg, and then fold the dough over to make a semi-circle shaped parcel, pressing down the eggy edges to seal.

Place the parcels on a greased baking tray and allow them to rest for ten minutes. Then brush with the remaining egg, and sprinkle with the grated Parmesan. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes or so before eating.
