Kids in the Kitchen – Cheese and Potato Pasties

Welcome to this week’s Kids in the Kitchen where I share what cooking my kids have done and invite you to do the same with the linky at the end of the post. This week the Little Man helped me make Cheese Pasties and we’ll show you how in a little while.

First I’d like to thank last weeks linkers The Beesley Buzz for sharing their Cheese and Onion Pasties (gone wrong) but still ended up looking tasty.
We were also joined by Autism Mumma and her Mad Minion Open Sandwiches, which are really clever. I’ve never made open sandwiches, maybe this is something I should do with my kids.

I’d love for you to join us, so if you’ve been making anything at all with your kids in the kitchen please link up, old posts or new are very welcome and I’ll add you to my Pinterest Board as well mentioning you on Twitter and here on Kids in the Kitchen next week.

Cheese and Potato Pasties.

I would have liked to have made my own puff pastry and will try it with the kids one day soon, but this time we used ready made.


to make 3 pasties (The kids had them for lunch)
250g ready made puff pastry
1 egg for brushing
50g chedder cheese, grated. (Star loves grating cheese for me)
three small potatoes, peeled, chopped and par boiled for 5 mins.


The Little Man rolled out the pastry to about 3cm thick.
We used a very large circle cutter to cut out six circles from the pastry
The Little Man put a little cheese and a few cubes of potato in the middle of 3 of the circles
Then he brushed the edges with the beaten egg
Then we put the other 3 circles on the top and sealed the edges by pressing down with a fork.
The little man brushed the pasties with some more egg and pushed the fork into the middle of each one.

We baked them in the oven at 190C/gas mark 5 for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.
I then put the left over cubes of potatoes into the deep fat fryer and we served the pasties with saute potatoes for lunch.

 This made me giggle, I gave the Little Man an egg and a glass and asked him to break the egg in the glass. He took me a little too literally and the broken egg shell ended up in the glass while the egg was all over the counter!

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked, then share it with us here.

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)

    I love that shot of the cracked egg. Most of ours end up on the floor, so you're one step ahead! These sounds really easy – something I could get my two to make after school one day.

    I love how much your kids do in the kitchen. We are watching Junior Masterchef at the moment so I think I need to convince Grace that we should link up 🙂 Thank you for linking to PoCoLo x
