Here's a recipe for Guernsey Pastry filled with savory ingredients like cheese and onion or bacon and egg:


For the pastry:

  • 250g (2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 125g (1/2 cup) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • Pinch of salt
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) cold water

For the filling:

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 150g (1 1/2 cups) grated cheese (cheddar works well)
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped (optional)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped chives for garnish (optional)


1- Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the cubed butter and rub it into the flour using your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

3- Gradually add the cold water, a little at a time, mixing until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overwork the dough. Form it into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

4- While the dough is chilling, prepare the filling. In a skillet, sauté the chopped onion until translucent and slightly caramelized. Remove from heat and let it cool.

5- In a separate bowl, mix together the grated cheese, chopped cooked bacon (if using), beaten eggs, and the cooled sautéed onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6- Roll out the chilled pastry on a lightly floured surface to about 3mm thickness. Cut out circles using a pastry cutter or a glass.

7- Place a spoonful of the cheese and onion mixture onto one half of each pastry circle, leaving a small border around the edge. Fold the other half of the pastry over the filling to form a half-moon shape. Press the edges firmly to seal.

8- Place the filled pastries on the prepared baking tray. Brush the tops with a little beaten egg for a golden finish.

9- Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is cooked through.

10- Serve the Guernsey pastries warm, garnished with chopped chives if desired. Enjoy the delicious savory flavors of Guernsey in every bite!
