Can you freeze these?

    Hi Rachael, yes, you can freeze these. Freeze as soon as they are cool enough in either a freezer proof container or bag, and remember to label them with what they are and the date. Recipes that are suitable for freezing are marked with a round blue symbol with a snowflake on it. Thanks for getting in touch.

Made these tonight and my husband loved them. He ate 3!! I wasn’t as keen but probably because I don’t like the taste of warm corned beef. Will make them again with a different filling for me next time ????.

Planning on making these today for lunch at work…will they still be ok to eat Friday? Thank you

    These will keep for a few days in the fridge, but they also freeze very well! If you are going to freeze them make sure you defrost them thoroughly and that they are piping hot throughout when reheated 🙂

Made these and added carrots and a beef stock cube. Mashed everything together whilst hot then filled the wraps and baked as recipe. Some sealed well while some just wouldn’t. Even so, filling stayed inside. Tasted delicious. Thanks for creating the recipe
