The best thing to do with left over roast pork is….

Pork and Apple Triangles: A puffed pastry triangle filled with warm roast pork, apples, onion and fruit chutney. These are a family favourite on boxing day and this year having Christmas away my parents, I wasn’t going to miss out and made my own. Many years of hanging around the kitchen as a child has paid off, I was about to recreate these simple little treasurers with no trouble at all. I love that I just shared them with my partner, step daughter and niece and they have just told me they are delicious.

They are so simple and quick and was seriously tasty and moreish.


Cold leftover roast pork, cut into small cubes

Onion, finely chopped

Green apple, finely chopped

Fruit chutney to moisten the mixture

4 sheets bought puff pastry

Pork and Apple Triangle

Pork and Apple Triangle


Mix all together in a bowl

Cut puff pastry sheet into 4 squares and add a spoon of the pork mixture

Fold the square in half to form a triangle and then press to seal

Repeat with all the filling until done, it makes approx 16 triangles

Brush with egg wash and bake in a moderate oven until puffed and brown

Warning: they are really hot inside

I ate 4 of them, for some reason I can eat twice as many of these as I would in a normal meal! Maybe as they only happen once a year. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas filled with wonderful family and food.
