  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 4 whole eggs, whisked
  • 100ml of water or milk

  2. Place the mixture on a floured board and combine until flatten to a disc, wrap in clingfilm and chill in your fridge for at least 1 hour.

  7. In a large pan, add the butter and lightly saute the onion with the herbs and garlic until soft and slightly translucent.
  8. And the sprouts, season with salt and pepper and stir to combine the mixture, setting aside until the pastry has cooled.
  9. Place the filling in the pastry, before whisking the eggs and water/milk together and pouring over the filling.
