  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion until softened but not coloured. Meanwhile remove the skin from the sausages and break into small pieces. Add to the pan and fry for 5 minutes until golden. Stir the smoked paprika, oregano, baked beans and tomato puree. Cook for 5 minutes then remove from the heat. Leave to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas Mark 6. Cut the pastry into 6 or 12 squares or rectangles (depending on the size pasties you choose). Mix the egg yolk with the milk to make an egg wash. Brush the edges of the pastry with the egg wash and divide the sausage and bean mixture between the pastry pieces. Fold over the edges and pinch to seal.
  3. Pierce a slit or small hole in each pasty, allowing the steam to escape. Sit on a nonstick baking sheet and brush the surface of the pastries with egg wash. Cook for 20-25 minutes, until the pastry is golden. Cool slightly before serving.
