    Get ready to sink your teeth into one of these bad boys. It’s all about the buttery, flaky pastry encasing a filling of yummy veggies seasoned to perfection.

    Homemade is always better and a pastie is no exception to the rule. When you realise how easy and delicious pasties are they will quickly become a family favourite. They definitely are at my house.

    The perfect recipe to try during lockdown and a great way to get the kids involved with basic cooking and baking skills. These beauties are delicious on their own, as a snack or add a crisp salad and a side of veggies and turn these into a meal.

    I pack these pasties for picnics, parks and beach trips or you can even make them in miniature size for parties.

    I love that the filling can be so versatile and you are able to experiment with different veggies. So make sure you give them a try!

    Stay safe Melbourne.
