People are sharing their homemade Greggs pastries after the chain released secret melt recipe

WHAT A MELT

GREGGS recently gave fans missing their baked goods the ultimate gift - the secret recipe behind their melts.

Delighted by the move, pastry-lovers have been sharing their homemade attempts at the famous Greggs products on social media - and they look delicious.

Last week, Greggs made the lockdown period more bearable by revealing how to make their sausage, cheese and bean melts. 

Many have done an incredible job at following the recipe, and their creations look like they could have been bought from the chain.

One person wrote alongside a photo of their bakes: "When your boyfriend misses #Greggs so much he makes his own cheese and bean melt. apparently it was delicious #lockdown."

Another Greggs lover added: "Miss Greggs so much I made a sausage bean and cheese melt and it’s incredible."

So how can you do your own version of Greggs’ popular melts?

All you need is puff pastry, cheese, beans and sausage (the pre-mixed ones in a can would work well) and an egg. 

First, crank up your oven to 180C (gas mark 4) and then begin on the pastry prep. 

Cut two squares of puff pastry and egg wash the edges, before mixing the beans and chopped up sausage in a separate bowl.

Then add the beans and sausage to the middle of one of the squares. 

Sprinkle some cheese on top, and then add the identical square on top.

Use a fork to seal the edges of the pastry, and use the rest of the egg wash across the top of the bake. 

Add to the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown and piping hot throughout. 

Greggs shared a video of the recipe on Facebook with the caption: “Up for a bit of GIY (Greggs It Yourself)?

“If you’re craving a Sausage, Bean and Cheese Melt right now, we sadly can’t bake it for you, but here’s how to #GreggsItYourself.

“More easy-to-follow recipes on the way, so get your bake on and share your GIY creations using the hashtag.

“On your Greggs, get set, go!”

One person wrote: “Just what you need to get yourself through this time!”

Another fan added: “we are saved.”

Some people pointed out that Iceland currently sells Greggs sausage rolls and baked goods, which could be perfect if you are feeling lazy. 

Others asked Greggs if they could also share the recipe for their chicken bakes, to which they replied: “Watch this space.”

We shared how Greggs closed all 2,050 branches in the UK due to coronavirus last month.

And Greggs sales topped £1billion for the first time last year thanks in part to vegan sausage rolls.
