  1. Flavour etc was fine, but absolutely impossible to ‘crimp’ wraps – whatever make you use. So the filling spilled out, and the edges became burnt and inedible. Shame, recipe had real promise!
    And yes, I did try more than one brand of wrap, and yes, I did try with less filling-made no difference – you just can’t crimp wraps.

  2. Hi love your recipe for Capone, but do you have one for Salmon and broccoli? I have seen from pasty recipes but dread to think what the sun value would be. Many thanks

  3. Would you be able to make this as a vegan / vegetarian option by using the quorn instead of chicken and brushing with soya milk instead of eggs .thank you just wondering X susann

  4. Hi 🙂 are these OK to eat cold?

    I drive for my job and don’t have access to a microwave and really struggle for lunches!

    Thanks 🙂
