  • Use a second quantity to make pies. Shred meat from bones and return to sauce. Freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Make pies by spooning defrosted lamb among 4 pie dishes. Cut 1 sheet puff pastry into quarters and cover each dish. Brush with beaten egg. Bake on high, 200°C, 20-25 minutes, until golden.
