  Butter 1 Ounce (25 Gram)
  Flour 1 Ounce (25 Gram)
  Milk 8 Fluid Ounce (250 Milliliter)
  Made mustard 5 Milliliter (1 Teaspoon)
  Mature cheddar cheese 3 Ounce, grated (75 Gram, English Type)
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Cooked ham/Bacon 8 Ounce, finely chopped (225 Gram)
  Stuffed olives 4 , sliced
For pastry
  Plain flour 8 Ounce (200 Gram)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Margarine 2 Ounce (50 Gram)
  Lard/White fat 2 Ounce (50 Gram)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed For Mixing)
  Hard boiled eggs 2 , thickly sliced
  Beaten egg/Milk 1 (For Glazing)
  Cucumber slices 4 (For Garnish)

Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute.
Gradually add the milk and bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
Simmer for 3 minutes then stir in the mustard and cheese and season to taste; add the ham or bacon and the stuffed olives and leave the filling to cool.
Sieve the flour with a pinch of salt into a bowl.
Add the fats and rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Add sufficient water to bind to a pliable dough.
Turn out on to a floured surface and roll out thinly to a 30 cm (12 in) square.
Place half the filling down the centre of the pastry, lay the eggs on top and cover with the remaining filling.
Cut the sides of the pastry into diagonal strips 2 cm (J in) wide and plait these pieces evenly to enclose the filling completely.
Transfer to a dampened baking sheet and brush the top with egg or milk.
Cook in a hot oven for 20 minutes then reduce oven temperature to moderate and continue for a further 15 to 20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
Serve hot or cold.
Garnish with slices of cucumber.
