Ingridiens for Giant Welsh Oggie

Steps to make Giant Welsh Oggie


Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 425 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Prepare dough


In a food processor combine 6 ounces of flour, 2 ounces of butter, 2 ounces of lard and a pinch of salt by pulsing a few times until coarse crumbs form.


Add water


While still pulsing, slowly add 2-3 tablespoons of water until dough forms a ball-shape.




Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.


Cook leeks


In a pan over low heat, melt 1 ounce of butter and add ½ cup of sliced leeks. Cook for 5 minutes.


Add potatoes


Add 6 ounces of potatoes, cut into chunks and cook for a further 5 minutes.


Add lamb


Add 6 ounces of lamb, cut into pieces and cook for 2 minutes until browned then cover with the lid and continue cooking for another 6 minutes.




Season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool slightly.


Prepare pastry


After resting, divide the pastry in two pieces and roll them out into approx 9 inch, round shapes. Brush with some beaten egg wash and then divide the lamb mixture between the two pastries, placing it along one side of each of the circles. Brush the edges with some more beaten egg wash and fold the circles over the filling so that the edges meet. Crimp the edges to seal.




Transfer the pasties to a lined baking sheet and using sharp knife, make several slits in the top. Finally brush the entire pastry with any leftover egg and bake in the preheated to 425 °F oven for 15 minutes, before reducing the heat to 360 °F and cooking for another 30 minutes until golden brown.



Enjoy your pastry served hot or cold.

I didn't use lamb instead I went for beef cause I feel like lamb is just too expensive where I live but I'd say this was a really good recipe .

Brought leftovers to work with me and ate them cold cause we don't have a microwave in our office yet, it was actually quite good even a day later the flavors sunk in more in my opinion.

Evalynn Subramani

Delicious nothing more to say about it other than that.

Sky Grothaus

I added some peppers to the inside of this and also a bit of tomatos too I wanted a lot more things on the inside so it could have a bit more flavor.

Easy to make this but it needed a lot more than 3tbsp of water for my flour, had to add an entire cup so it wouldn't be pure flour.

Dalia Dailey
