Mushroom, Thyme & Red Onion Pasty


When I was pregnant with my last baby (No.4) I really really craved mushrooms.

So as you can imagine I became rather inventive thanks to my hormone hijacked taste buds.

I created a number of mushroomy creations that were loved by my cravings and the family alike so I’d love to share this one..

These pasties are Rich, Simple to make and Super comforting.

You will ❤❤❤ them… This makes 4 large paties.

Prep Time : 20min.

Cook Time : 30 mins
