🧈 James Martin Turkey And Ham Pie Ingredients

  • 25 g butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 leeks, trimmed and finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp. plain flour
  • 100 ml dry white wine
  • 300 ml chicken stock
  • 100 ml double cream
  • 450 g leftover turkey meat, shredded
  • 300 g leftover ham, shredded
  • Small handful parsley, roughly chopped
  • 320 g ready rolled puff pastry sheet, we used Jus-Rol
  • 1 medium egg, beaten

🥧 How To Make James Martin Turkey And Ham Pie

  1. In a large frying pan set over medium heat, melt the butter. Fry the leeks and onion for 10 minutes, or until they are tender.
  2. Put in the garlic and cook for a minute, or until it starts to smell good. Add the flour and mustard and cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  3. Stir in the stock and wine one little at a time until well blended. Put the pan back on the heat and bubble, stirring regularly, until the liquid has reduced by half. Fold in the parsley, turkey, ham, and cream.
  4. Taste for seasoning. Carefully transfer the turkey mixture to a rough 1.4-liter ovenproof serving dish and let it cool for a bit.
  5. Set the oven temperature to 200°C (or 180°C if using a fan oven). Roll out the pastry sheet to fit the serving dish, if necessary.
  6. Apply an egg wash to the edge of the pie dish, then place the pastry on top and firmly press down to compress. Remove any extra pastry, if required. Toss the egg over the pastry lid.
  7. Bake for 30–35 minutes, or until golden and steaming hot, after making a tiny steam hole in the middle of the dough. Add more greens on top if you desire.
