Expert tips for this recipe

Firstly, have the meat filling thoroughly cooked and leave it to cool a bit before spreading the crescent dough out. Always spoon the filling in an equal mound to surrounds the centre opening, this will leave plenty of dough to wrap it as well over it. You can use either a table knife or small spatula to tuck in the dough well.

Give a nice glossy finishing to your dough by brushing it using an egg that was already beaten with a spoonful of water before you slide it into the oven. If you don’t like the ground beef you can substitute it with a ground chicken
