Bought some of these for lazy weekday dinners.

Would love some inspiration for interesting toppings that ideally don't require any cooking beforehand.

This one does need some pre-cooking but is nice squash if you roast the squash the night before then it is very quick.

Dice sweet potato in 1cm cubes, microwave for 4 mins while you get out pastry, heat up oven etc. Add the sweet potato to the top of the pastry and dot around soft goats cheese and top with pine nuts.

Mozzarella, tomato and pesto.

Black olive tapanade and tomato.

Courgette and peppers diced 1cm and red onion thinly sliced - toss with balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and oregano before putting on the pastry.

Jarred roasted red peppers and canned artichokes hearts with capers

This red onion marmalade one looks lush - would be worth buying a jar of red onion marmalade to use in quick dinners like this

Asparagus and parmesan with a squeeze of lemon.

Asparagus pesto and pinenuts.

Diced tomato, diced chorizo, butterbeans.

Following- I've got guests over Friday and half a block of homemade rough puff in the freezer.

Our fave is a smear of red pesto, red onion, (no need to precook), beetroot and goats cheese. Very rich and lush.

Cooked chicken, chopped mushrooms and condensed mushroom soup. Mix together. I usually cook for 5 mins to soften the mushrooms. Is yummy! ( also good as a coveted pie)

I'm sure it is coveted, Destinys, but did you mean covered? grin

(I used to do something like that to fill ready made vol au vent cases. Lovely.)

If you score the pastry a centimetre in from the edge all round and brush with beaten egg you'll get a lovely golden edge to your flans.
My favourite is a layer of pesto, sliced tomatoes topped with mozzarella. Drizzle with olive oil and bake.

We make pizza, so ham cheese etc, or roll out on icing sugar and make egg custard ... yum... dinner and pudding!

But do you put the toppings on top of raw dough? I have done that and it is always raw in the middle but starting to burn in the edges....

Destinysdaughter Wed 04-Nov-15 18:43:27

Oops yes I did mean covered!

TinklyLittleLaugh Wed 04-Nov-15 18:48:02

I don't score the edges any more precisely because they have more of a tendency to burn then. Toppings right to the edge, turn the oven down a bit if it burns before it cooks through.
