Method

  1. To make the filling: Mash the cold potato well and mix in the sausagemeat. Season with salt, pepper and mace or nutmeg. Shape into a roll about 6cm (2½in) in diameter.
  2. To make the pastry: Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and rub in the fat. Add the oatmeal, rub it all together, then mix in enough water to make a flexible pastry.
  3. Set the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6. Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface to an oblong big enough to wrap around the filling. Turn it over and put the roll of filling on top, leaving a good margin at the sides. Dampen the pastry edge and roll it up "as you would a roly-poly pudding". Seal the ends like a parcel.
  4. Put on the baking sheet. If you have pastry trimmings, cut out a few leaf shapes and arrange them on top. Brush with milk. Bake for 30-40 mins, until the pastry is golden. Serve in slices, hot or cold, with salad.
