Turkey & Potato Pie

This turkey pie recipe is one for the whole family (including Baby’s first Christmas!). It freezes well so you can make a batch for another day. As a top tip, it’s best to sweat the veggies slowly with the thyme which will release a tasty flavour.

Ingredients
30g unsalted butter
1 small shallot, diced (40g)
1 medium carrot, diced (100g)
1/2 small leek, thinly sliced (30g)
1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped
4 tsp white wine vinegar
20g cornflour, mixed with a little cold water
400ml unsalted chicken stock
2 tbsp crème fraiche
225g cooked turkey (white & dark meat), cut into bite-sized pieces
500g potatoes, peeled and cubed
15g butter
3 tbsp milk
1 egg white lightly beaten (optional)
Method
  1. Melt the butter and sweat the vegetables and thyme for 10 minutes until soft. Add the vinegar and boil until the vinegar had evaporated then stir in the cornflour. Add the stock a little at a time to make a smooth sauce then add the crème fraiche and season to taste with salt and pepper (optional, for babies 12 months +). Allow to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for around 15 minutes, until just tender. Drain the potatoes then mash well. Beat in the butter and milk and season to taste (optional, for babies 12 months +).
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6 / 180 Fan.
  4. Put the turkey into the base of ramekins or small dishes (we use 9.5cm diameter ramekins) and spoon the sauce on top. Spoon over the mash and fork the surface of each pie. Put the dishes on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes. The tops can be browned further under a hot grill, and if you brush them with a little egg white they will brown nicely.
  5. To freeze,do so before baking stage. To serve, defrost overnight in the fridge and follow the baking instructions above.
