This is a different variation on a chicken mince roll and is totally encased in the home made pastry.

I made the pastry as thin as possible as otherwise it takes over the whole taste.

This is a good recipe as it has vegetables within it, and you need no more cooking.

I served it with baby carrots as had nothing else to make a salad!

It is good to eat hot and also cold and would make a great addition to a buffet or a cold lunch.

Preparation Time: 40 minutes plus refrigeration 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
500 g chicken mince
3 rashers bacon, chopped
250 g frozen spinach portions
1 large tomato, seeded, chopped finely
1 red chilli, chopped finely
1 cup grated cheese-any sort is OK
2 tbsp self-raising flour
1 egg, beaten
cup parsley, chopped finely

FOR THE CASING
1 cup plain flour
cup self-raising flour
65 g butter, chopped
About cup water.

Method
Preheat the oven to 190 fan forced. Brush a deep 21 x 14 cm loaf tin with melted butter or oil, or line with baking paper.

Put the flours and butter for the casing in a large bowl. You can either use a food processor for about 20 seconds or as I did, mix by hand which will obviously take longer. Mix until it is fine and crumbly.

Add the water, a little at a time, and either process for about 15 seconds or until a soft dough forms, or mix by hand. You may have to vary the amount of water so make sure you add it slowly.

Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until it is in one piece

Roll three quarters of the dough about the size to cover the base and extend over the sides. Ease into the loaf tin.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, for the filling -heat some oil in a pan, and add the chopped bacon. Cook for about 8 minutes or until browned. Add the frozen spinach.

Cook, covered for about 8 minutes or until spinach defrosts, stirring to prevent sticking.

Cook uncovered for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.

Combine spinach mixture with remaining filling ingredients. Season.

Bake about 35 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Leave in the tin for up to 10 minutes before taking out.

Serve hot or cold, sliced.
