Step 1

Preheat oven to 220C or 200C fan-forced.

Step 2

Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium, cook leek for 3 minutes until soft but not coloured and then add mushrooms and bacon, increase the heat to high and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until mushrooms are soft and bacon crisp and then add the turkey, cream and mustard and season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes until sauce thickens slightly.

Step 4

Remove from heat, stir through cheese and parsley and cool.

Step 5

Cut 4 x 14cm rounds and 4 x 17cm rounds from pastry.

Step 6

Lay smaller rounds on prepared tray and top each with a quarter of turkey filling leaving a 2cm edge around pastry and then rush edges lightly with beaten egg and then top with remaining pastry, folding edges over to seal and then cut a small steam hole in the top and brush with the egg wash (at this stage you could make shapes such as leaves from the pastry scraps and use them to decorate your pies and then brush with egg wash).

Step 7

Bake for 20 minutes until puffed and golden.

What a tasty pie! Had every intention of using turkey from Thanksgiving that I had in the freezer, but I didn’t like how it tasted, so substituted with a rotisserie chicken and it came out yummers! Added a bit of poultry seasoning and a touch of “Better than Chicken Bouillon” to add more chickeny taste. Also, topped the pie plate with the puff pastry to make it easier during these Christmas prep days. Because of the busyness (?word) of the day, left it in the oven a bit too long, but it turned out wonderful and tasty anyway. Love what the parmesan, leeks, etc. do to heighten the flavor of this pie. A delightful dinner! Thank you, Pat, for sharing. Made it for FYC.

Delish! Put a large turkey leg/thigh in the crockpot for this recipe which gave me enough to double the recipe. Added some peas and fresh sage. Put it into a casserole and topped with the puff pastry. Wonderful dinner! Thanks for this keeper Pat! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

A great after-Thanksgiving meal that doesn't taste like leftovers! I did make some changes by using pie crust (Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust) and adding a package of frozen mixed vegetables. As we made one large pie we cooked the pie at 425 for 35 minutes instead of the time indicated. A great meal accompanied with fruit. Thanks for sharing!

What a delicious lunch we had today. Loved the addition of the dijon mustard to the sauce. A couple of changes -- one out of necessity as I didn't get home from the grocery store with my puffed pastry sheets. I had to use pie crust for this pie and I made it as a whole pie vs. smaller individual ones. I also added some peas and corn to the pie -- just to have a few more veggies. This is comfort food at its best. : ) Nancy
