    French Tart's Note:

    This is such a wonderful and easy recipe, especially if you are Stilton cheese and potato fans, as we are! Just slice up pre-cooked potatoes, add a slice of Stilton, season and bake in a pastry case, and there you have it......a great snack, lunch or picnic food extraordinaire! Serve them with assorted chutneys, pickles, salads or even MORE potatoes for a very tasty meal. I have stipulated ready-made shortcrust pastry, but puff pastry would also work well. Ingredients are listed for 4 people - however, this recipe is easy to multiply or reduce, according to your potato and Stilton supplies!!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    Pies or ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
    2. 2
      Grease and line a sturdy oven proof biscuit (cookie) sheet.
    3. 3
      Cut out 8 pastry circles - about 3" to 4" in diameter - a cup is a great template!
    4. 4
      Place the sliced potatoes on 4 of the pastry circles - leaving a 1/2" border.
    5. 5
      Season well with black pepper, and salt if you wish - remembering that Stilton is quite salty itself.
    6. 6
      Place a slice of Stilton cheese on top of the potatoes.
    7. 7
      Place the remaining 4 circles of pastry over the top - bringing up the bottom pastry circle and pinching them together to make a crust - the bottom pastry circle should sit over the top of the top pastry circle as a seal.
    8. 8
      Press the crust with the back of a fork to make a pattern and seal the pastry circles together.
    9. 9
      Cut two 1" slits in the top of each pie - to let the steam escape.
    10. 10
      Glaze the tops with the beaten egg and milk mixture.
    11. 11
      Place onto the lined and greased oven tray and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp.
    12. 12
      Allow to cool slightly before eating, as the cheese will be very hot!

      This is so good, I did do a few things different though. Made two according to recipe. Good.. Made another two put a touch of prepared mustard on the bottom sheet, and also sprinkle green onion on. They were also very good. I can see where this simple recipe with a green salad is worth having a glass of wine with even for late lunch. Thanks

      FT - this was exceptional! We loved it - added some sliced mushrooms, made it into one large pie - and it made a great dinner. Thanks for posting.
