Just like McDonalds, Greggs has shared how to make its famous sausage bean and cheese melt at home.

In a video shared to Greggs’ Facebook page the chain takes fans through a step-by-step process on how to put together the much loved melt.

To assemble, all you need is a can of baked beans with sausages, cheese, puff pastry and an egg. 

Start by preheating your oven to 180C/Gas mark 4.

Then cut out two squares of puff pastry and egg wash the edges.  

The, put the bean and sausage mix into a bowl and mash it with a fork before placing the mixture in the pre-rolled pastry. 

Sprinkle the cheese on top and place the other piece of pastry on top, then push down your fork to the edges of the square to seal the parcel.

Do another egg wash across the entire pasty and bake for 20 minutes.
