Turning leftovers into some thing special

 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.

 Roll out the pastry into a large oblong, place the well sauteed onions, garlic and peppers onto the pastry, roll the sausage meat out to fit the pastry.

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.
