Cheese and Marmite Pasties !

Well if you no like the marmite, look away :)   I LOVES IT SO MUCH!  I put it in most recipes!   So here’s a marmitey twist on a trad Cornish Pasty … It HAS to be Cornish ‘cos it’s made by me and I’m Cornish heeheehehe ;)


Feeling lazy so got a pack of Jus-rol short crust pastry.

4 medium potatoes

1 medium onion

1 veggie stock cube

BIG teaspoon of marmite

Loads of cheese, the more the tastier, as much grated as you can get in hehehe! Say a half of one of those big packs .

egg for painting and making pasties look gorgewah!

Chop the potatoes and onions into small cubes and put a tiny ickle bit of olive oil in a pan, add the potatoes and onions and fry for a minute, then add a little water, add the stock cube, marmite and salt and pepper, give it a good stir and simmer for 15 mins till soft, you want some liquid, so keep an eye, but not too much or you end up with soup, a bloody tasty soup, but no good for pasty making! I know, I done it hehe!

Put aside to cool, and when cool add the grated cheddar as much as you lie, I add loads ‘cos that’s the main nom of the pasty!

Then roll out your pastry into circles and put a dollop of the mixture in so it’s nice and full then flip the top over and crimp round the ages. If you want to make less trad ones, you can use star cutters, cut one for top and one for bottom, then put the filling in, egg round the edges, roll the top one so it’s a big bigger and then slap it on top, and stick it down

What ever shape you’ve made put them on a non stick baking sheet, paint with egg and make a hole in the top :)   I made my star ones with little faces, but that’s just me ;)

Cook in an oven at 180, for 15 – 20 mins for small  ones, or 150 for 30-35 mins for bigger pasties.  You’ll know when they’re ready as they are golden brown and smell like heaven :)

You can eat them hot or cold, on a picnic, out on the Moors with a home brew beer and a view to die for :) We’m be goths right, so we say stuff like that ;)
