This is a fabulous turkey pie, made from scratch with a flaky pie pastry and with leeks, carrot and potato. You can change the type of veg added - garden peas or celeriac make a nice addition - and you can also use leftover roast turkey. But if I'm making this pie without leftovers, I simply poach turkey breasts in water to cover, and then chop. You can use the cooking liquid in place of some of the stock, as well!
Very nice although ... I think parboiling the carrot and potato would be good as both were a little hard. I smeared the pastry with chutney before placing chutney side down over the filling - delicious! - 04 Feb 2014
delicious with a few changes. Made on valentines day in a heart shaped caked tin. No pastry at the bottom and I included the pickle idea lightly pasted to the pastry crust on the underside nearest the pie mix. We had this with Delia's Christmas recipe for red cabbage. Absolutely delicious. - 14 Feb 2014
