Default Tuna & Spring Onion Plait

Little man has just had this lunch & it went down a storm,

1 pack of ready to roll shortcrust pastry
1 tin of tuna,drained
1 potato cooked & mashed
2 spring onions chopped finely
1 tomato peeled & chopped
15g cheese grated
Sprinkle of parsley
1 egg beaten

Preheat oven to 180c
Roll out the pastry into a rectangle & make cuts 1/3 of the way in on both sides
Mix together the tuna,potato,spring onions,tom & parsley.
Place it down the centre of the pastry & then fold over the cut pieces to make a 'plait'
Brush the ends with egg to make them stick
Brush all over with the remaining egg & sprinkle the cheese on top
Place in oven on a well greased tray
Cook for about 20 mins.

Allow to cool then slice & serve.

these are the same thing-
chicken puffs makes 8 puffs
1 350g packet puff pastry
filling-
1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
approx 250g cooked chicken, skinned, flesh cut into small pieces
2 tsp chopped fresh tarragon (or 1 tsp is using dried)
1 medium egg, beaten
preheat oven to 200oc/400of/gas 6
for the filling, saute the onion in the oil over a medium heat until soft but not browned. Put the onion in a bowl with the chicken pieces and tarragon, add the beaten egg and mix.
Roll ou the pastry thinly and cut into squares. Place spoonfuls of mixture on to each square, brush the edges of the pastry with cold water and fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle. Bake until golden about 15 mins.
Subsitute the chicken with turkey, you can also add a little (tbsp maybe) savoury white or cheese sauce to each parcel.
