How to make your cheesy nettle puff pies

  • Lightly oil a muffin tin
  • Roll the pastry so that it is quite thin and cut to fit the holes in the muffin tin
  • Line the muffin tin so that the pastry is slightly above the rim of the  holes
  • Mix the nettles and grated cheese
  • Divide the mixture into 12 and half fill the pastry cases
  • Mix the milk and eggs and season with salt and pepper
  • Pour into each pie so that the nettle and cheese filling is just covered
  • Add a little ramson sauce to the top of each pie
  • Top with a slice of tomato
  • Put in a preheated oven a 200 C for 1/2 an hour
