Delicious recipes for cottage pie and chicken tikka pie - & how to freeze

Chicken, veggie or fruity – who doesn’t love a good pie? They can be made in advance and popped in the freezer ready to cook whenever you need them. My cottage pie recipe with its mashed potato topping and my chicken tikka pie with puff pastry topping are both delicious. My top tip for this week is to freeze pie fillings flat in a bag, with the topping separate – this saves a huge amount of space, rather than freezing the pie fully assembled in a large dish.

Greggs has now revealed the exact recipe of their famous steak bakes

If you are missing their famous baked goods, you might be in for a treat this Easter weekend. The bakery chain has now revealed the exact recipe of their popular steak bakes - and pastry lovers are desperate to try them. All you need for the bakes is puff pastry, an egg, finely diced beef, cornflour (or flour) mixed with water, and beef stock. Firstly, you need to sizzle the beef in a fry pan until it has browned. Then pour on the beef stock and add the cornflour mix, and wait until it has thickened to your taste. Next leave to cool, and get working on your pastry. You’ll need to cut two rectangular pieces of puff pastry - Greggs advises these should be 108mm x 94mm, if you want to be precise.

Egg wash the edges and then spoon your beef filling onto the middle of one of the pastry pieces. Add the other pastry rectangle as a lid, and fork the edges, before adding egg wash to the top.
