This 4 ingredient recipe is, without a doubt, the quickest version of a French savoury pastry that can be enjoyed by the family all together or the family on the run. With a BF of -39, tortière makes a relatively low carb and healthy meal from ingredients that can be handy in the pantry and freezer.
Remove puff pastry from the freezer and thaw until cool enough to unroll or unfold. Keeping the pastry cold will make it easier to work with.
Dice onion and sauté with ground meat in a frying pan on medium heat until meat has been browned.
Remove from heat and drain excess fat from the pan.
Using 1/2 cup of the chutney, mix well into the ground meat and onions.
Unroll puff pastry keeping its liner underneath. Cut pastry in half and separate halves on the liner. Using a rolling pin, roll pastry into a square sheet.
Put half the meat mixture onto each of the sheets.
Carefully bring all corners of the pastry to the centre above the meat and twist 2-3 times to form a pinwheel.
Press twisted pastry down into the middle of the tortière.
Slide tortière with liner onto a baking sheet. Fold edge of liner under itself until corner of tortière is sitting on the baking sheet.
With one hand inside the folded liner, gently lift the tortière keeping the far corner on the baking sheet. With the other hand, gently pull the bottom edge of the liner until it is removed from under the tortière.
Bake in preheated oven as per temperature suggested on puff pastry package for 18-20 mins or until golden brown. Use the remaining mango chutney as a garnish for the finished tortiere.
