500g of bread flour from Aberfeldy oatmeal

(alternative 500g short brought short crust pastry)

125g butter

125g lard

Big pinch of salt

6-12 tablespoons of water


600-700g Buffalo mince from Puddledub Buffalo

1 big onion very fine chopped – from John Reid & Sons

2 teaspoons of English mustard powder

1 Oxo or beef Bovril stock cube

60g of Suet

3 teaspoons of ground black pepper

1 heaped teaspoon of onion salt

Spare flour & butter/oil for greasing baking tray




1. Pre heat over to 220 degrees C and line baking trays with oil and a thin dusting of flour. Make the pastry first by crumbing the lard and butter into the flour and salt. Add water a spoon at a time and mix and knead until the pastry forms a smooth dough. Cover in cling film and let the pastry chill in the fridge for 15-30 mins.

2. Make the Bridie filling by mixing all the listed ingredients together and rolling into balls between the size of golf and snooker balls. (The smaller you make them the more you can make)!

3. Portion the pastry depending on how many Bridies and the size of Bridies you wish to make and then roll them out on a floured surface into rounds that are no thicker than a 3-4mm

4. Place buffalo filling patties just off centre of on each Bridie and then use a pastry brush to wet the edges of the pastry rounds; and then fold over each Bridie and seal. Go around the edges again adding a crimp to help keep the filling inside. Finally place each pastry on the baking tray and poke a small hole into each Bridie to help them cook.

5. Cook the Bridies in a hot oven for 15 minutes then lower the oven to 180 degrees centigrade and cook for 20-35 minutes until the pastry is cooked through and the meat inside is tasty and tender
