One of Life’s easy meals! Pinwheels are a great snack or appetiser and are a great way of using up leftovers. The binder ingredient in this dish is the mash, and you can use just about anything in it to make a tasty meal. Think Thai flavours with tuna, Italian with beef or even Indian curry puff inspired pinwheels…oh yeah! Today however, I’m using leftover roast and making a yummy Roast Chicken version.
YOU WILL NEED:
Mashed Potatoes, cooled (about 2 cups) I actually used leftover roasties, which do the same job!
3 x puff pastry sheets
1 x egg for brushing the pastry
1 x cup chopped roast chicken
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup gravy
1 x clove garlic, crushed
pinch of thyme
THE HOW TO:
Add your ingredients to your mash and mix well until all comined. Be careful not to add too much liquid as you don’t want it to become too mushy. (I stuck mine in the food processor, due to the roasties so I could ensure a fine and even texture).
Divide the mixture into 3 and spread out on a pastry sheet with the back of a spoon. ensure you leave a little space round the edges.
Carefully roll up your pinwheel, place on an oven tray lined with baking paper and brush with a little egg wash.
Bake in a Moderately hot oven (180 – 200 Deg C) for approx 20 mins or until the tops are golden and flaky.
