18 quail eggs

650g Cumberland sausages or other good quality sausages, split and squeezed

1 small onion, grated

1 Bramley apple, peeled and grated

Small bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves chopped

½ tsp Tabasco sauce

1cm thick slice of ham, cut into small chunks

50g fresh breadcrumbs

500g all-butter puff pastry

1 egg, beaten

Wholegrain mustard, to serve

Boil the eggs for 2½ minutes, then cool slightly before peeling and trimming away each end.

Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas mark 7.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the sausage meat grated onion, apple, parsley,

Tabasco, ham and breadcrumbs.

Roll the pastry out to 25 x 35cm, lift onto the baking tray and brush all over with beaten egg.

Press two-thirds of the sausage mix along one of the long sides of the pastry, leaving 2cm pastry free on one side and half of the pastry empty on the other side.

Make an indent down the middle of the meat with your finger, then lay the eggs along it.

Layer and press over the rest of the sausage meat.

Fold the pastry over the sausage and press the edges together, before trimming with a knife and sealing well by pressing the edges with a fork.

Brush over with more egg and bake for 40 minutes until golden.
