Cabbage Slice

After the “oh no ! I have no pastry in the freezer !” incident the other night, I decided to a) stock up and b) make something with it.  I decided on one of the simplest and yummiest recipes I know, cabbage slice – a soft cheesy cabbage and egg filling encased in flaky pastry.  It’s one of my comfort foods.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 onion, sliced
  2. 1 small head of cabbage, sliced
  3. 1/2 cup grated cheese (or 1 cup if you’re feeling extra cheesy)
  4. 3 boiled eggs, chopped
  5. salt and pepper to taste
  6. 2 sheets ready rolled puff pastry
  7. 1 beaten egg

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200C
  2. In a large frying pan, fry the onion until soft
  3. Add the cabbage and stir fry until soft (this part’s a bit messy until the cabbage at the bottom cooks)
  4. Add the chopped eggs and mix
  5. Add the cheese and mix so it coats the cabbage and egg
  6. Pile cheesy cabbage mix on to the middle of one sheet of pastry and arrange so that you’ve got 3cm clear around all four edges
  7. Give the clear edges a baste with the beaten egg to help seal
  8. Place the second sheet of pastry on top and seal the edges with a fork
  9. Slash a few diagonal cuts across the top to allow steam out while the pastry cooks (helps to keep the pastry from going soggy)
  10. Wash the top with the beaten egg
  11. Pop into the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown
  12. Cut into quarters and enjoy ! (Leftovers are good cold the next day too)
