About this recipe: Great way to use up the leftovers after Christmas! We also do this pie throughout the year with chicken.

Jenowuk Oxfordshire, England, UK

Serves: 4 

  • 30g butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 pack mushrooms, chopped
  • 35g flour
  • 150ml milk
  • 120ml chicken stock or gravy
  • 300 to 400g cooked turkey
  • 1/2 jar cranberry sauce
  • leftover stuffing
  • leftover vegetables
  • 200g puff pastry

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Heat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Heat butter in a frying pan. Fry the onion and mushrooms gently, until translucent. Add the flour and stir well (recommend you sift first to avoid lumps!). Pour in the milk and stock, and stir until it thickens.
  3. Stir in the turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and any leftover veg. (If you have no stuffing leftover, you can get the same taste by adding a teaspoon of dried sage). Transfer to an ovenproof dish.
  4. Roll out the puff pastry, and top the ovenproof dish, creating a pastry lid to the pie.
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.

First time making a pie with left over turkey, stuffing & cranberry sauce so was a bit dubious to say the least. What a surprise!!! Turned out wonderful. The whole family loved it. The cranberry sauce I used was homemade & I did make the pie with a pastry base as well as the top. This is a keeper & great way to use up all the left overs from Christmas dinner. Thanks so much for the recipe - 20 Jan 2016
