Saute any onions, garlic and peppers, or any veggies you have.
Defrost the ready made pastry and sausage meat that only cost 20p each on Christmas Eve – if you can stand the last minute crush, and if you have a freezer, then you can get bargains for pennies.
Use any leftovers you have. I added a few chopped sun dried tomatoes and a couple of tablespoons of cheddar that I had curling up in the corner of the fridge.
Cut the pastry so it resembles a child’s version of a Christmas tree and then plait.
Glaze with a beaten egg and bake in a hot oven on 180′ for 45 minutes.
Get Dearly Beloved to make a salad of reduced price spinach, grated carrot and peeled and sliced reduced price cucumber. Toss in a homemade dressing.
The finished plait will serve six with salad, or made three meals for the pair of us.
The final result make leftovers, for nothing more than pennies, into a delicious and very frugal supper.
