You should have four rectangles. Place a layer of the lamb mixture down the middle of each pastry rectangles in total. 4. Preheat the oven to Gas mark 6, 200°C/400°F. Brush one side of the pastry with the beaten egg, fold the other side of the pastry over to meet the egg washed side. 5. Seal the edges with a fork. Glaze the top of the pastry with the egg wash. Cut 6 rolls from each length. 6. Transfer the 24 rolls to 2 large non-stick baking trays, leaving plenty of room for each roll to rise. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. 7.
