Turkey and Leek Pie

leek-pie.jpg

Today (1 March) is St David's Day, which gives us the perfect excuse to scoff some delightful Welsh produce - namely the humble leek.

This quick and easy pie recipe is hearty, wholesome and features the Welsh vegetable as a star ingredient - combined with a buttery puff pasty and meaty chunks of turkey. All you need are Welsh Cakes to finish it off.

Preparation time

15 minutes

Cooking Time

60 minutes

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 350 g left over turkey
  • 350 g sweated down leeks
  • 75 g butter
  • 75 g flour
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 300 ml double cream
  • Chopped thyme
  • Pre-rolled puff pastry

Method

Step 1: In a saucepan melt the butter on a medium heat and add the flour stirring constantly until you have a roux. Cook gently for 3 mins then slowly add the stock 1 ladle at a time stirring continuously until you have a lump free sauce.

Step 2: On a low heat cook the sauce for 10-15 mins to cook out the flour taste. Add the chopped thyme and double cream and season to taste. Allow to cool.

Step 3: In an oven proof rectangular dish add the turkey and leeks, pour over the sauce then roll your pastry over making sure it overlaps the edges.

Step 4: Rest in fridge for 10 mins. Brush with egg yolk and cook in a pre heated oven at 190°C for 35-40 mins.
