Potato, Cheese and Onion Pasties

Is there a more delicious combo than cheese, onion and potato? Absolutely not when it’s pouring out of puff pastry that’s for sure!

This is hands down my all time favourite pasty. For my UK readers, this is like the cheese and onion pasty you get from Greggs, but so much better. Am I allowed to say that? Who knows. Who cares. It’s true ????

Can we just talk about this combination of dreams?

Potato and onion – faceplant.

Potato, Cheese and Onion Pasties

But all 3!? I don’t know why I’m trying to convince you here, we all know it makes sense.

Just before we get into the ins and outs of these pasties, let’s see how easy they are to make.

How to make Cheese & Onion Pasties with Potato

- Fry finely diced potato in a drizzle of olive oil until golden and crispy.

- Melt in butter then fry off some grated onions for a few minutes.

Potato, Cheese and Onion Pasties

- Place in a bowl and allow to cool.

- Mix in cheese, mustard, cream, parsley and seasoning.

- Split a sheet of pastry into 4 rectangles and distribute your filling.

- Fold over, pinch the edges with a fork, brush with egg was and bake in the oven.

Most similar recipes to this actually boil the potato before mixing it with the cheese and onion, but in my opinion it’s such a wasted opportunity for added flavour and texture. Frying the potato adds heaps more flavour and also gives you a gorgeous little crispy crunch within the gooey cheese. Plus, you need to fry off the onions anyway, so why waste time boiling up your tatties when you can fry ’em? ????

Potato, Cheese and Onion Pasties

For me it’s gotta be puff pastry every time. In theory you could use shortcrust pastry, but I find it all ends up a bit ‘heavy’. Puff pastry keeps the whole thing light and allows the fillings to be the star of the show.

A nice sharp cheddar will do the trick. I’d steer away from flavoured cheeses such as pepper jack of smoked cheese because it becomes too distracting. I’ve also tried mozzarella in the past too, but just doesn’t quite cut the mustard – figuratively and literally ????

Fancy pattern on top, any need?

These are actually steam holes, used to stop the pastry going soggy from the inside. I usually just stick with the 3 arrow shape slices, but that’s about as far as my artistic ability goes, so feel free to dress them up as you desire!

These cheese and onion pasties are perfect for lunch and so great to make ahead.

Potato, Cheese and Onion Pasties

Just make them as instructed but leave off the egg wash, then pop them in the fridge and apply just before baking.

They’re also perfect for someone who wants to destroy their diet… Yeah sorry these are certainly not slimming world friendly, but holy smokes they’re worth it!

Because if you’re not sold on the holy trinity of potato, cheese and onion by now then I’m not sure what else I can do!

Any who, let’s tuck into the recipe shall we?

To the bowl add your cheese, mustard, parsley and cream/milk. Give it a good stir and leave to one side.

Slice your pastry into 4 equal rectangles. Split your filling into 4 and place to one side of each rectangle. Brush around the edges with your egg wash then fold over and push down with your fingers to secure.

Using a fork, press down around the outside of each pasty. Place on a lightly sprayed oven tray and slice some steam holes in each pasty .

Give the pasties a final brush of egg wash and place in the oven at 200c/390f for 15-20mins or until golden brown.

oh wow, these look soooooooo good

I remember having a Greggs near my school more years ago than I’d like to think – we would sometimes go there for lunch and I think I remember the pasties you mean. These definitely look and sound a lot better though, and so comforting!

Ah that’s so awesome! Cheese and onion pasties are always my go-to choice there. I just decided to take it too far and whack in some potato too

Potato, Cheese and Onion Pasties

Such a pretty comforting recipe! I love the looks of this and can’t wait to give it a try!

OMG these look incredible! i will be adding them to my appetizer list for an upcoming party! yahoo!

I agree! You have me sold. That flaky pastry is swoon worthy.

You can’t beat puff pastry right!?

I so wish I had one of those right now, if not the whole pile of them! I love the fact that you browned the potatoes first! So much better!

Potato, Cheese and Onion Pasties

Haha, I think I did eat the whole pile!!

Putting these babies on my menu! They look ridiculously delicious and perfect for lunch all week!!!

Wow! These are fantastic! I had leftover filling and used it for a breakfast side to scrambled eggs today. I like things spicy so I added jalapeños to the filling and also laid some bacon on top. The jalapeños were a great addition, but the bacon was not. Won’t add it next time and there will definitely be a next time. Thanks you for such a great recipe!!

That’s so great to hear, Linda! I’ll definitely give it a go with jalapenos soon, I love them with pretty much everything!!
