Recipe: Spicy Turkey Tarts

I love turkey- it's not just for Christmas you know! If cooked properly, turkey can be very delicious and moist, and then theres just so many things you can do with leftover cooked turkey, with this recipe being one of my favourites. Very quick and easy to make, and very tasty. If you all dont mind me speaking so soon about "That December Event", in mid-September, but this also makes a fab Boxing day lunch to use up your roast dinner leftovers!
Spicy Turkey Tarts (serves 2)
1 yellow pepper, sliced thinly
200g tomato pasta sauce
¼ tsp smoked paprika
200g diced cooked turkey
1 green chilli, diced finely
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 ready rolled puff pastry sheet
Milk or egg to glaze (Optional)

1.       Preheat the oven to 210C. Mix together all of the ingredients (except the pastry and milk!) in a mixing bowl, and season to taste. Cut the pastry sheet in half. For each half, fold over the sides, creating “borders”.
2.       Place the tarts onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Prick the middle of the tarts with a fork, to prevent the middle from rising. Top the tarts evenly in the middles with the turkey mixture (be generous! Don’t worry it shrinks in the oven!).
3.       Brush the sides of the pastry with milk or egg, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until well risen and golden. Serve!
