  • 8 oz (225g) Plain flour
  • 6 oz (175g) Butter or margarine
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 lb (450g) Good quality sausage meat
  • 1 medium Sized onion (grated)
  • 1 tsp Sage (or dried mixed herbs if sage is not to hand)
  • To serve Folláin Irish Tomato or Chargrilled Red Pepper Relish


  1. To make the pastry: weigh out the required amount of butter or margarine, wrap it in a piece of foil and place it in the freezer for 30-45 minutes.
  2. Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl, remove the butter or margarine from the freezer, dip it in the flour and then grate it into the flour on a coarse grater.
  3. Keep dipping the butter into the flour to make it easier to grate.
  4. Take a knife (not your hands!) and coat all the little pieces of butter in the flour.
  5. Now add enough water to make a dough that leaves the bowl clean, using your hands to bring it all gently together.
  6. Pop the dough into a plastic bag and refrigerate for half an hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/gas mark 7.
