Sardine and egg jalousie

Sardine and egg jalousie


A puff-pastry dish, Jalousie is French for a type of blind or shutter with slats for regulating the passage of air.


In a large bowl put 4 hard boiled eggs (chopped quite small), 1 x 120g can of sardines in oil (drained), 1-2 teaspoons of curry powder, 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of salad cream, season with salt and pepper.

Take 1 packet frozen puff pastry (13 oz) (thawed), roll it into a 12 inch square (or thereabouts). Spoon the sardine/egg mixture onto half of it. Dab a little water round the edge of the pastry and bring the remaining pastry over the top and seal the edges. Carefully lift onto a baking sheet lined with foil. Put slits in the pastry and brush with a little milk.

Bake in a pre-heated hot oven, Gas 5/6 and bake for about 15 minutes or until nicely browned. Serve hot or cold with salad and herby bread.
