    • 200g packet ready rolled filo pastry
    • 50g (2oz) butter, melted
    • Fresh chives
    • Red pepper
    • Avocado, prawn and lemon:
    • 25g (1oz) butter
    • 1/2 lemon, grated rind and juice
    • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
    • 50g (2oz) fresh peeled prawns
    • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled, stone removed and diced
    • Feta and lime:
    • 25g (1oz) butter
    • 1/2 lime, grated rind and juice
    • 50g (2oz) feta cheese, crumbled
    • 15ml (1tbsp) fresh coriander, chopped
    • Sausage and cranberry:
    • 4 chunky sausages, skins removed
    • 15ml (1tbsp) cranberry sauce
    • 25g (1oz) bean sprouts
    • 1/4 green pepper, deseeded and finely sliced


    • Make each of the fillings separately by mixing together all ingredients listed for each.

    • Take the sheets of filo and cut into 4 (this should give you rectangles about 15x20cm)

    • Place one sheet on a board and brush with melted butter, place a further sheet on top and brush again with butter.

    • Place a spoonful of the mixture at the edge in the centre and roll up – pinch the edges to make a cracker shape – continue until you have sufficient crackers for the festive occasion!

    • Place on a baking sheet and brush with a little more melted butter – this will make them crisp and golden

    • Bake in a preheated oven at 190°C/375°F/gas 5 for about 15 mins until pastry is golden and crisp

    • Finish off with fresh chives and very thin strips of red pepper for ‘bows’
