Turkey Pie

3CD493D8-54BA-4A6D-B726-5A73793A535FB0B7271B-97E8-4618-8079-B3C5B833B0EBTurkey pie is one of my favourite meals. It’s one of those comfort food meals that just makes you feel good when you have it. Have to admit I don’t make the pastry. I get the pastry from the best pastry maker I know. The nice thing is the pastry maker is my wife. She makes the best pastry I have ever eaten. Tried making the pastry from the recipe she uses but it wasn’t a tenth as good as what she makes. So this is as much her recipe as mine.

5 cups left over cold turkey

3 cups of diced carrot

2 cups of diced onion

3 cups cups of diced celery

1 cup of frozen corn

3/4 cup of frozen peas

3 minced cloves of garlic

2 teaspoons of butter

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 teaspoons salt (this may seem a lot but your seasoning the turkey also)

1 teaspoon pepper

1 and 1/2 tablespoons flour

1 and 1/2 cups of chicken stock

9 by 9 baking dish

pasty enough for a bottom and top

Add butter and oil to a frying pan on medium high heat. When hot add carrots, onions, celery, garlic, salt, and pepper, cook for five minutes stirring often. Put corn on a dish and microwave for 3 minutes on high. Chop the turkey and put in a large bowl.

After the vegetables have cooked for 5 minutes add the flour and stir for 2 minutes, add stock, corn, and peas, cook until thickened. It should be thick but not like paste. You want a fair bit of liquid, add more stock if needed. Stir the mixture into the turkey and let cool.

Line the 9 by 9 baking dish with pastry, add the turkey mixture.  Cover with pastry sealing the edge.  You need to cut a vent in the top ( you can make it look pretty like my wife does) brush the top with an egg wash. Bake for 1 and 1/2 hours at 350 . Let rest for 15 minutes then cut and serve.

One of the nice things about roasting a turkey is that you get lots of gravy. We serve this with gravy and have a salad. I am a bit weird so I make my own salad dressing.

      Noticed it today. I use my iPhone rather than my laptop. Was on the laptop today and seen it and others. Will have my WordPress genius son Ian fix it Sunday. Since all the stuff that makes WordPress work is his creation he can fix it. He needs to earn his supper anyways. Check out the steak and kidney pudding post.
