Homemade Sausage and Bean Melts

Today, Rosie and I woke up and wandered to the local Greggs for some lunch. The “Sausage and Bean melt” being our favourite we, of course, were hugely disappointed when there was none left! at 1:30pm! (I may be over emphasising just how upset we were but still.)

So we thought hey how hard can it be to make some of our own?!

We went to Tescos and purchased a simple selection of items:

1x Pre rolled Jus-roll puff pastry
1x Heinz Baked Beans with Sausages
1x Tesco Pre Grated Cheddar Cheese

Came to about £2.50.

The process was very simple. Unroll the pastry, cut into 4 (this leaves you with some nice rectangles you can fold over) and then spoon on some beans and sausages, a little heap of cheese and then fold over. We then sealed the edges using a fork, to make a sealed package.*

* Note: Whenever I say “we” i actually meant Rosie. She’s good at this kind of thing.

A good 20 minutes later, they’d risen, smelt amazing and they tasted even better. Screw you Greggs! We don’t need your stinkin’ produce.
