English Pastry Pinwheels With Cheese and Onion

READY IN: 38mins




  • Fry the onions until soft and cooked.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C or 350 degrees F.
  • Lay out the puff pastry sheet.
  • Spread the mashed potato over the pastry, leaving a half inch gap at one end (if you have a rectangular sheet of pastry, leave the gap along one of the longer sides). This will allow the pastry to seal once rolled and stop the filling overflowing.
  • Spread the onions and cheese over the mashed potato, again leaving a gap.
  • Roll the pastry tightly towards the end with a gap in the filling.
  • Dampen with water the pastry where you have left a gap and use this part to seal the end to the roll.
  • Cut into 3/4 inch pinwheels and bake on a tray in the oven for 12-13 minutes, or until the pastry is cooked and the cheese golden.
  • Allow to cool slightly before removing from the tray.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
