Cheese and potato pasties

Posted by me on May 8, 2020 at 3:15 PM

I always have a couple of packs of instant mashed potato in my store cupboard, perfect for when I need tatoes in a hurry or when I just can’t be bothered cooking... thinking outside the box today ( I needed a real savoury kick)I made these TO DIE FOR cheese and onion ‘pasties’ in under 20 minutes using a packet of instant mash, an onion, some cheese and soft flour tortillas! Super simple and super duper tasty the kids and grown ups will absolutely love them ������������


Cheese and Tato pasties - makes either 4 jumbo ones or 8 smaller ones

1 x instant packet of mashed potato, made according to the packet instructions or 400g cold mashed potato

1 large onion, finely diced and fried for 5 minutes in a large knob of butter or margarine until soft

150g mature cheddar cheese grated - plus a little extra for the top

4 x 8-10” soft flour tortillas or 8 x 6” tortillas

You can add a heaped teaspoon of mustard or some chopped chives if you like but it’s not necessary ��


Mix the ready made mashed potato, cheese and fried onion together.

Lay the tortillas on a work surface and divide the mixture between them - positioning on the top half of each and leaving a 1cm border. Wet the border with a little water then fold the tortillas in half and press gently to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges and place on a baking tray, lined with baking paper. Wet the surface with a little more water and sprinkle with a little extra grated cheese.

Bake @160c in a fan oven for 12 minutes (180c in a regular oven)
