Beat the egg with the splash of milk, brush your parcel with the egg-wash and bake until golden brown – 25-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make the cheese sauce… (we don’t have this bit on film – sorry!)

Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat, then throw in the flour and stir continuously for 3 minutes.

Start to slowly add the milk – about a quarter at a time – whisking the whole time to stop lumps forming.

Once all the milk is added, remove the pan from the heat. Then stir in the English mustard and the mature cheddar.

Spoon over your piping hot pasty.
