  • 2oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • ¼ pint milk
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons water


  • 8oz onion, finely chopped
  • 3oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons mixed herbs

  • 3 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Salt and pepper
  • Anchovies, if desired, and black olives


  1. Put flour, salt, cayenne and baking powder in a bowl and rub in butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add cheese.
  2. Mix to a soft dough with milk and water. Knead until smooth then cover and chill for 10 minutes.
  3. Well grease a swiss roll tin and roll out pastry to fit. Press well down and prick all over.
  4. Spread tomato puree all over dough then cover with flaked tuna. Scatter on herbs and onions. Cover with grated cheese.
  5. Cover decoratively with sliced, lightly fried mushrooms, anchovies and olives if desired.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven Gas 7 . 425elec / 220c for 25 minutes.

Cut into small pieces for cocktail parties, larger pieces for buffets. If you are using anchovies soak them in milk first to remove the salty taste.

Wrap in foil and freeze whole. Reheat covered from frozen for about 20 minutes as above.
