Apple, Black Pudding and Red Onion Pastry Rolls

  • dash of oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 400g black pudding, diced
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced (granny smiths are good for this)

  • salt and pepper
  • for the pastry
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry, cut into half lengthways
  • 1 egg, beaten for egg wash

Method:

  • In a pan over low heat, add a little oil and the red onion, cook for about 5 minutes. Add the black pudding and the apple. Cook this for about 5 minutes or so. Everything will have softened and will have started to mix together. Mix in the chutney, taste and season. Let this mix cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 190ºC.
  • Roll out the pastry, brush with some egg wash. Spoon some of the filling down the centre of the pastry. Fold the pastry over the filling and use a fork to push them together. Use a small knife to score the top of the pastry. Sprinkle some poppy seeds on the top. Cut them into the size required.
  • Place these on a tray lined with parchment and bake for about 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
