  • In a saucepan, make a paste with the butter and flour on a low-ish heat. Once combined, turn heat up to mid and add the oil, leeks, salt, pepper, garlic and cook til leeks are soft.
  • Then add mushrooms, wine, cream, turkey & ham and stir. Once it's been bought up to temp (bubbling gently for 5 mins) set aside & allow to cool.
  • While mix is cooling, place the short pastry over a dish (rolling out to fit if needed). Brush with 1/2 the whisked egg and blind bake in a med oven 160-180 for 10 mins.
  • Take out, leave to cook for a bit and then add the cooled filling mixture.
  • Place the puff over the top, brush with the rest of the egg and cook for 40-50 mins in a medium oven.
  • Mine's a fan so took 45 mins at 180. Yum!

  • Additional Information

    This is pretty heavy so doesn't need much to accompany it. I served it with some celeriac mash (steamed celeriac until soft and mashed with white pepper and a knob of butter) and peas.
