Leftover turkey pie
This dish looks impressive but is actually very simple to put together with the help of frozen veg and ready-roll pastry - perfect for tired mums during the Christmas season.

400ml milk

2 cloves of garlic, minced

½ onion, diced

1 bay leaf

1 leek, chopped

100g frozen peas
100g frozen baby carrots

3 tbsp flour

3 tsp Dijon mustard

1 pack of puff pastry

1 egg

50g Parmesan

In a saucepan, heat the milk, garlic, onion and bay leaf. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, soften the chopped leek in a frying pan over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Add the leftover turkey, carrots and frozen peas for the last 5 minutes.

Add the flour to the turkey and leek mix and cook for a further 2 minutes. After removing the bay leaf, stir the milk into the mix. Add the mustard and stir constantly until you have a thickened sauce.

Place the mixture in a rectangular baking dish and top with a sheet of puff pastry. Brush the pastry with a beaten egg and sprinkle the Parmesan on top.

Bake for 25-35 minutes and serve with salad.
