These pasties are delicious hot or cold. A couple of pasties with vegies on the side makes a good main meal, or they’re great to serve at parties, picnics and BBQs. Very popular in lunchboxes too.

Ingredients (makes 20 pasties)

  • 1 medium White Onion
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 240 gm Tuna in brine (well drained)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 1 cup White Sauce
  • 1 cup Potato (finely diced & lightly steamed)
  • 1 cup Peas & Corn Kernels (lightly steamed)
  • 1 cup Carrots (finely diced & lightly steamed)
  • 1 teaspoon Parsley (finely chopped)
  • Pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 packet Puff Pastry Slices
  • 1 Egg (beaten with a little milk)


  1. Finely chop onion and saute in butter until soft. Add onion to white sauce with all remaining ingredients (except pastry), and mix well. Cool completely before using.
  2. Place each pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface, and cut into 4 equal squares. Place a spoonful of tuna mixture on one diagonal half of each square, dampen the edges of the pastry with a little milk & egg mix, and seal corner-wise. Use a fork to gently press around the edges of each pasty to ensure they are sealed.
  3. Line several baking trays with baking paper, and place pasties on trays. Glaze the top of each pasty with a little milk and egg mix, and bake at 230 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes, until golden brown.


I sometimes add a little garlic to the white sauce, and a pinch of dill, which really complements the flavour of the tuna. And you can substitute a couple of spring onions for the regular onion. I like to sprinkle a few poppy seeds over the top of the pasties after they're glazed, but before they go in the oven.

  • Sounds like these would taste so good


  • One thing I have never had is a tuna pastie, but it doesn’t mean to say I’d pass up one. The ingredients sound like a lovely mix so the next step is to make up a batch and give them a go.


  • Would be great to have in the freezer too


  • Be careful with using poppy seeds if anyone who eats them gets drugged tested at work, can fail the test.


  • Not a bad idea and could use frozen mixed veggies that I have made up thawed in them.


  • Never would have thought to put tuna in a pastie but can’t wait to give it a go as I like to try new things.


  • I think I’m in love I love regular pasties so much but this variation looks lighter with the tuna and mustard has me interested get in my belly


  • These sound great for lunch boxes.


  • These look great! Party coming up and will definitely try them out!


  • Oh yum, these sound awesome! I’ll have to give them a go sometime!

    • Tried them, they are as good as they look! Great recipe!


  • Thanks for the recipe. Looks very tasty.


  • Thank you, I’m putting this into my “recipes to try” folder.


  • They look very easy and quick to prepare indeed!!


  • This looks very nutritious and full of flavour.


  • I think I’d need to try one of these first before I went to the effort of making a whole batch. I love tuna and pastry items, so I’m curious at how this would taste together.
