Stilton Cheese and Celery Pasties

Stilton cheese and celery make the perfect combination for a spin on the classic pasty – great as a midweek family supper or packed up for a meal on the move, try these delicious pasties as a Bonfire Night warmer.

Serves: 6       Prep time: 20 mins        Cooking time: 30-35 mins

You’ll need

  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp English mustard powder
  • 200g Stilton cheese, crumbled
  • 4 sticks Fenland celery, diced
  • 450g ready-made puff pastry
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten with tablespoon milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Grease and line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  2. Boil the potatoes until they are soft enough to mash; mash them until they are smooth, then add the mustard powder, crumbled Stilton cheese and the diced celery.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Roll the pastry out on a well-floured board and stamp out circles with a saucer or small plate, to about 5” (13cms) in diameter.
  5. Spoon some of the filling mixture over one half, moisten the edges of the pastry then fold the pastry over to form a crescent and seal by crimping around the edges with your fingers or a fork.
  6. Place the pasties on the baking sheet, cut a slit to allow the steam to escape and brush them all over with the beaten egg and milk mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until they are golden brown.
  7. Remove the pasties from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving warm, or cold.

Can be frozen before baking.
