For me a picnic isn’t a picnic without some kind of savoury pastries, whether that’s sausage rolls, a homemade quiche or something more adventurous. Here’s a great selection of recipes for your next picnic or garden party.
Asparagus Tarts with a Pesto Surprise make the most of seasonal asparagus, goose eggs and pesto.
Beef Empanadas are rather like a spicy version of a Cornish pastie, and delicious hot or cold.
Cheeseboard & Chutney Quiche came about as a way to use up the remnants of a Christmas cheese board, but it’s so good it’s worth making at any time, throughout the year.
Chickpea & Vegetable Hand Pies are perfect finger food encased in flaky puff pastry.
Chorizo, Cheddar & Cherry Tomato Sunny Picnic Quiches are perfect for eating outdoors.
Indian Sausage Rolls are a family favourite since my mum first made them for a school fete when I was a young girl.
Leftover Roast Lamb & Mint Sausage Rolls are a great way to use up leftovers, and perfect for picnics to boot.
New Potato, Asparagus and Goats Cheese Filo Tartlets are light, summery and easy to make.
Sweet Chilli Sausage Plait looks so impressive as a table centre piece but can also be easily sliced and packed into a box for your picnic.
Veggie Haggis Sausage Rolls are especially delicious with the accompanying firecracker sauce.
Wild Pesto Garlic Pinwheels are the perfect spring recipe, making great use of seasonal wild garlic.
