  1. I’ve waited so long for these
    Would it be possible to freeze them, either cooked or uncooked?
    Thank you x

  2. These look delicious. I don’t live in the UK and don’t have access to wraps like those, only normal wraps. I was trying to think of a suitable substitute, do you think filo pastry would work?

  3. I like the idea of these but as an alternative would do a curry or chilli version using 5% fat or less mince, chicken or just veg plus cut the wraps in half to make bitesize ones for parties or picnics

  4. Just tried to make these with the Bfree wraps but couldn’t get edges to stick together no matter what we tried!😢

  5. I found it allmost impossible to crimp the edges of the glutinous free wraps in fact it seemed a waste of ingredients it simply would not stick with the use of a fork so any tips would be brilliant as the idea of a pasty could have been heaven !

    1. Hi Tracy
      Gluten actually helps things stick together, so the gluten free wraps aren’t the ideal as you will have problems with the edges. The edges of the WW ones do stick a lot better

  6. I have made these this evening, but as my husband is vegetarian I used a mixture of potato, onion, parsley and cheese mixed with a little milk, they look yummy and tasted yummy too.

    I used tortilla wraps, but found it didn’t want to stick together very well, are tortilla wraps different from wraps please?

  7. So look can’t wait to make these.ill do them with 5%mince if I can’t get the lean corned beef locally. Hubby will go nuts for these in his lunchbox and I’ll probaprobably try to do mini one for a picnic either the kids!! Pre “yummers”

  8. Hi my partner bought the weight watchers high fibre tortilla wraps. Are they classed as the same as the white wraps?

    1. Hi Jenny,

      They would reheat quicker if you were to defrost them first, plus you would need to be careful not to burn them if cooking from frozen 😊

  9. Hi first time on here, these look amazing just wondering if quorn mince could be used instead of the corned beef? Thanks xx

    1. Hi Lynsey
      Yes, you could use Quorn mince instead, it would be like a meat and potato pasty, but without the meat 🙂

  10. Whatever you do, don’t use the BeFree wraps! They don’t seal with the eggwash, and they can’t be crimped! Disaster!

  11. if your doing mince ones with potato carrots and mushrooms to avoid it being too dry what stock can u put in can u put gravy in it

  12. These are great.. my husband loved them too. I also cut the wraps in half, added a mix of instant pot mixed with chives, curry powder and frozen peas and made folded them up into parcels and egg washed them and baked.. Just like samosas.

  13. Mine are in the oven – left over chicken curry, my mouth is watering already. Can’t wait to do the corned beef ones and the samosas also sound great. Great idea tgamks

  14. Where can you buy weight watchers wraps from please? as everywhere i have tried have discontinued these

    1. Hi Christine,

      They are available in many supermarkets – you would have to contact your local store to see if they stock them currently.

  15. Good morning ladies….. can I just say I love your page it’s amazing!! Thank you for the guidance and lovely recipes 😘

  16. Mine always burst open.
    I used the eye wash and a fork to crimp the w watcher wraps.
    They tasted great but I need to find a way to keep them sealed.

    1. Hi Jeanette,

      Several of the supermarkets stock them, but it varies between local stores as to whether they stock them or not. It would be best to contact them directly 😊

  17. I notice a lot of comments about the pasties not sticking together using the egg wash. I think the problem could be solved by using cocktail sticks to seal the ends for cooking and then they can easily be removed. Just a thought as the sticks would keep them together so it would mean you could use any make for the shell.

  18. Hi, these look fab, how do you think they’d work reheating them? Just thinking if I cook them and then take them to work will they reheat in the microwave? Thanks x

  19. Hi Veronica – How did you get these to stick together? Was really looking forward to using these instead of the WW ones when I went to Ireland so I stocked up. No way did these stick together, even using cocktail sticks it was disastrous…..TIA if you can help Marie x

  20. Would these work without egg wash as I’m allergic to eggs but really want to try these is there anything else I can use please??

  21. Hiya, love the site soooo much!! keep up the great work, it is very much appreciated, I loved the look of these but not a fan of corned beef, so made them with some left over bolognase! had one with salad for lunch – AMAZING! Thank you!!!!

  22. Thanks for this recipe, tried these out at our slimmers world group couldn’t find recipe…. so my friend Beverley tag me in, so looking forward to making these today, it’s a big help as well to see the pictures of the products so we know what to lookout for.

  23. These are amazing, thanks so much for this fab recipe! Made for the second time today and even hubby enjoyed one for lunch! This time I added 1 tsp medium curry powder to the filling mixture which was tasty but not really spicy so might up it next time.

  24. Made these recently, and added some Swede too. They turned out perfectly, and were extremely filling.
    A definite hit in our house!

  25. Made the GF version today I used a paste of 1tbls GF bread flour and water to seal the pasties, brushed it all round the edges of BFREE Wraps and they have sealed without crimping them

  26. Using the gluten free ,maybe you could stand them up and sort of twist the top to keep the filling in, instead of making them flat , be more like a parcel

  27. Hi, is it possible make this without the mustard powder (would it taste ok)? I have Dijon mustard if that would work? Thanks, Ria

  28. Hi I’ve just made these and they were a huge hit with all the family. I just found the “crust” a little bit tough and wondered if I could do something to prevent it next time. I egg washed the wrap and cooked them for 10 mins one side and 13 mins other side fan oven 175 degrees?

  29. Has anyone found a way to make the bfree wraps stick down?
    I’m a coeliac so can’t use the WW wraps and would so love to give this receive a go😀

  30. 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

  31. Omg! I’m new to the site. In love with your recipes! Planning my meals for next week. This is definitely going to be one of them! Pre-ordered the book. Can’t wait until it arrives. Thank you so much for all your hard work! ❤

    1. 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 🙂

  32. I made these last night ! Substituted the potatoes for Swede instead as I’m doing SP. I love it!! Doubled everything in the recipe and made 6 🙂

  33. 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 😊.
