Total Time:
  • 300 g Potato(es), Raw, 2 x 150g
  • 2 teaspoons, level Low Fat Spread
  • 3 medium Leek, trimmed and sliced thinly
  • 1/4 teaspoons, level Mustard Powder
  • 1 teaspoons, level Coarse Grain Mustard
  • 1 large, raw Egg, whole, raw, lightly beaten
  • 4 individual Weight Watchers White Wraps
  • 50 g Half Fat Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons, level Poppy Seeds

Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Pierce the potatoes all over with a fork, then wrap each one in kitchen paper. Microwave the potatoes on high for 8-10 minutes, until tender. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, melt the low-fat spread in a frying pan set over a medium heat. Add the leeks and a splash of water and cook for 5 minutes or until very soft.

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the mustard powder, wholegrain mustard and 1 tbsp of the beaten egg. Mash until smooth, then season and stir in the softened leeks.

Put the wraps on a work surface and spoon one-quarter of the potato mixture onto one half of each wrap, leaving a 1-2cm border, then scatter over the cheese. Brush the borders with some of the beaten egg, then fold in half to enclose the filling. Using the back of a fork, press down to seal the edges.

Carefully slide the pasties onto a baking sheet and brush the tops with the remaining egg. Scatter over the poppy seeds and season with freshly ground black pepper. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the pasties are crisp and golden.

Cook’s Tip: Serve these cheesy pasties ‘ploughman’s style’ with lettuce leaves, chopped celery, beetroot, pickled onions and cornichons on the side.
