1.Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. Line two oven trays with baking paper.
2.Using a plate as a guide, cut six 22cm (8¾-inch) rounds from the pastry. Spread pastry with mustard, leaving a 1cm (½-inch) border around the edge.
3.Combine broccoli, cheddar and mozzarella in a large bowl; season. Place one-sixth of the broccoli mixture in centre of a pastry round; fold over to enclose filling, crimping the edge to seal. Repeat with remaining broccoli mixture and pastry rounds.
4.Place pies on trays. Brush with egg and sprinkle with seeds; cut four slashes on each pie.
5.Bake pies for 25 minutes or until golden and puffed.

Pies can be made the day before up to the end of step 3; store, covered, in the fridge.

Serve with a simple green salad.
