Woman's Weekly recipe Don't waste all the leftover turkey over Christmas. These delicious pastry nibbles will use up any leftover meat and they make great party food


  • 425g pack puff pastry sheets
  • A little beaten egg, to glaze

For the filling

  • 1 small leek, finely sliced, or about 125g (4oz) leftover cooked leeks or sprouts
  • 15g (Żoz) butter
  • 15g (Żoz) plain flour
  • 125ml (4fl oz) milk
  • 100g (3Żoz) cooked turkey and/or ham, fairly finely chopped
  • 1 rounded tablespoon chopped fresh parsley and/or thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Add chunks of Gruyere instead of meat for a vegetarian version


  1. To make the filling: If using fresh leek, cook the slices for a couple of minutes in boiling water
  2. Cool under running water and leave to drain.
  3. Melt the butter in a small pan and mix in the flour to make a paste
  4. Gradually add the milk to make a smooth, thick sauce and simmer for a few minutes
  5. Add the leeks and leave to cool
  6. Stir in the cooked meat and parsley, and season well
  7. Unroll the 2 sheets of pastry and cut each one in half lengthways, then each strip into 3, to get 6 squares (each about 10cm/4in square) from each sheet
  8. Work on one at a time
  9. Moisten round the edge of each square with a finger dipped in beaten egg
  10. Pile a tablespoon of filling mixture in the middle, and then fold one corner over to the opposite corner to make a triangular parcel. Seal well, knock up the edges and decorate them
  11. Put on a heavy baking sheet
  12. Chill the parcels while the oven heats up to Gas Mark 6 or 200░C.
  13. Brush the parcels with beaten egg, make a small hole in the top with a knifepoint and bake for 20 minutes
  14. Best served warm
