Still got leftover turkey breast? Use it to make a simple-but-tasty stir-fry.

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F, gas mark 7). Heat oil in a frying pan and brown the turkey. Add the leeks, mushrooms and thyme leaves and fry for about 10 mins until softened and slightly caramelised.
  2. Meanwhile. make a white sauce: melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the flour, stirring well with a wooden spoon to make a paste. Cook for 1 min. Pour over the milk a little at a time, whisking continually until you have a thick sauce. Crumble in the stock cube and season with pepper to taste.
  3. Mix the turkey mixture with the sauce and pour filling into a deep pie dish.
  4. Grease the edges of the pie dish with a little butter. Roll out the pastry and transfer to the pie dish to make a lid. Trim the pastry from around the edges and press down to seal.
  5. Brush milk or egg over the pastry to glaze it. Prick it with a fork and place in the oven at 220°C (425°F, gas mark 7) for 15-20 mins. The pastry should be risen and golden brown when you take it out.
  6. Allow the pie to stand for 5-10 mins, then serve with a simple boiled vegetable accompaniment.
