Step 3

Preheat the oven to 200ÂșC / gas mark 6. Roll out the pastry quite thinly and stamp out circles (with a small round cutter) which are big enough to fit into your cupcake tin. Grease the tin with a little sunflower oil then place the discs of pastry into the tin Line each pastry case with a little square of baking paper and fill with baking beans. Place it the oven to blind bake the pastry for 10 minutes. This will stop the pastry going soggy when filled.

In a jug, blend egg together with a splash of milk and some freshly ground black pepper. Remove the pastry cases from the oven. Place a little of the mushroom and turkey mixture in each case, then top with the egg mixture, leave a little space at the top as the egg will expand.
