    Using dampened hands, squash out an eighth of the sausage mix over each of the rounds of pastry, going almost right to the edges. Use a little water to wet the edges of the pastry. Sit a peeled egg in the middle of the sausage, season with a little salt and pepper, then pull the sides up over the egg and seal. Crimp the edges and put onto the baking sheet.

    Beat the remaining egg with splash of water to create an egg wash. Brush the pasties with the egg wash and place in the refrigerator for 30 mins.
