Equipment

Ingredients

  • 3-400 g left over cooked turkey
  • 125 g chorizo
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 200 g mushrooms sliced
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 300 ml milk
  • 300 ml chicken stock or left over gravy
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 320 g puff pastry I used ready rolled
  • beaten egg to glaze

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200℃ (180℃ fan)/400°F/gas mark 6. Cut 300-400g (10-12oz) turkey into bite size pieces. Remove the casing from 125g (4oz) chorizo and thickly slice or cut into chunks.
  • Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan and gently fry 1 sliced onion until softened. Add the chorizo and fry until the fat is released and the onions are beginning to colour.
  • Stir in 200g (7oz) sliced mushrooms and cook until beginning to soften, then add the turkey.
  • Sprinkle over 3 tbsp plain flour and slowly stir in 300ml (10 floz) milk and 300ml (10 floz) stock or leftover gravy. Bring to a gentle boil. stirring constantly. Transfer to a large pie dish.
  • Roll out the pastry a little bigger than the pie dish or unroll the pastry if using ready rolled pastry). Cut a strip of about 2cm (1in) wide pastry from around the edge of the pastry
  • Brush the edge of the dish with a little beaten egg and stick the strip of pastry to the dish. Brush the top of the pastry strip with a little more beaten egg.
  • Working quickly (the pie filling is hot and will start to melt the fat in the pastry) lift the remaining pastry over the dish and press down the edges with a fork to seal. Brush the top of the pastry with beaten egg and make a small slit in the centre to allow steam to escape.
  • Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake in the centre of the oven for 20-30 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and golden.
