Beef Hand Pies – Leftover Bolognese

  • Preheat oven to 200C fan-forced.
  • Cut each sheet of pastry into 4 squares. Working with 1 pastry square at a time, brush the edges with beaten egg wash.
  • Spoon 2 tablespoons of bolognaise onto one side of pastry square, scatter with some cheese then fold pastry over so corners meet to form a rectangular parcel. Press edges with a fork, to seal well. Place on a baking paper-lined oven tray. Brush the tops with beaten egg wash to glaze and cut a small slit in the top of each pie to vent steam.
  • Transfer trays to the oven and cook for 20 minutes or until pastry is golden and cooked through.
