Today we're making a filled pastie with bacon, onion, egg, mushroom and a few other great ingredients.
We had these for dinner but you can also use them for an indulgent lunch.
I hope you enjoy.
Step 1: The Dough
For the dough you will need:
- 6 cups of flour
- 500 milliliters of warm water
- 4 teaspoons of olive oil
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 4 teaspoons of sugar
- 4 teaspoons of yeast
Step 2: Mixing
Add the sugar, yeast and salt to the flour and give it a mix. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in your warm water and olive oil. Mix the ingredients together until it forms a dough. Leave it in a bowl in a warm environment for half an hour.
Step 3: Rolling
Separate your dough into 12 balls and roll into squares about 150 by 150 millimeters.
Step 4: Sauce
When the dough has risen spread a tomato based sauce onto it. I used our favorite recipe which is here. How to make a Rich Tomato based Sauce
Step 5: Toppings
Fry up 400 grams of bacon and put it into a bowl. Reuse the bacon pan by pouring water onto it until the base is just covered. Then use a fish slice to scrape the bacon browning's off the base of the pan into the water. Boil off the water until you are left with a paste like consistency. Cook three onions and 1/2 cup of capsicum in this. When they are cooked add 1/2 cup of mushrooms to the pan and heat until cooked.
Step 6: Filling
Use tongs to scoop your filling onto a sauce covered square of dough.
Step 7: Folding
Fold three sides of your pastie shut and crack an egg into the middle of the pastie. Then carefully close the fourth side.
Step 8: Cheese!!!
Grate some cheese and sprinkle on top of your pastie.
Next cook them in your oven until crispy and golden brown.
Step 9: Finished
We have now finished this great meal and it is ready to eat.
