    Turkey and Ham Pie with Bubble and Squeak

    Makes 6 portions

    Prep time –  1 hour

    Cooking time –  30 minutes

    INGREDIENTS 

    • 100g unsalted butter
    • 100g plain flour
    • 2lt chicken stock
    • 200ml double cream
    • 500g cooked turkey
    • 300g cooked ham
    • 1 white onion chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic crushed
    • 200ml white wine
    • Olive oil
    • 1 packet short crust pastry
    • 1 egg
    • 50ml milk

    METHOD

    • Melt butter in a saucepan and mix in flour, cook for 2 minutes without colour, stirring continuously.
    • Whisk in chicken stock, slowly bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes until thick, stir in double cream and remove from heat.
    • In another saucepan sweat the onions and garlic in a little olive oil until soft, add the white wine and reduce by 2/3.
    • Combine the two sauces and simmer gently.
    • Cut the ham and turkey into 2 cm dice and add to the sauce, check the seasoning, remove from the heat and place in a pie dish.
    • Whisk the egg and milk together and brush the sides of the pie dish.
    • Roll out the pastry and cover the pie dish, trim around the edges and brush with the egg.
    • Preheat the oven to 200c/gas mark 5, place the pie in the centre of the oven and bake for approx. 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

    To make individual pies you would need to line a 3-inch metal ring with the pastry, then fill with the turkey and ham filling and seal with a pastry lid, then bake for the same time.

    For the bubble and squeak, take all your leftover vegetables, potatoes and stuffing and mash in a bowl with a potato masher, take a small handful of the mix and mould into a cake, pan fry in a little goose fat until golden brown on each side. This is great served as an accompaniment for the pie and a good way to use up all those Christmas leftovers.
