With Christmas nearly here and loads of ideas flying about I thought I would repost one of my now well liked traditions – After Christmas pie!
A boxing day treat for all is to make a pie from the leftovers. There’s two pies I tend to make:
The first is a pie with leftover turkey and gammon, with some white sauce and a few other things (down to personal preference) like mushrooms and stuff in. It should be easy to make a big pie, I use shop bought shortcrust pastry, roll it out then place into the pie dish. I fill it with all the turkey, gammon and all then cover it up with more pastry, coat the pastry top in egg (use this to bind the edges too). And then cook for 30 minutes.
On top of this is the Christmas leftovers pie, which is genius. I got it from Paul Hollywood and it’s basically a pie with stuffing, turkey, bread sauce, cranberry sauce, whatever is left over in it. I made both of these and they’re simply out of this world and make a great boxing day meal that’s simple after the rigor of the roast the day before!
Don’t get too hungry now!
