Spectacular roast, scrummy sides, most  indulgent desserts, a pretty large amount of booze, then feast over, and, apart from the massive pile of dirty dishes, also leftovers. Reheating the roast the next day doesn’t sound very tempting, does it? So, why not use the leftover turkey and Brussels sprouts (and indeed any other veggies) to make this fabulous Leftover turkey pot pie recipe?

It is the very best pie you can ever taste, and it takes a lot less time preparing that you would think. Who said leftovers are not just as tasty? You don’t even need to bother making your own pastry to top the pie, just buy a ready-made one, and job done. After all, no one wants to spend the day after the big feast cooking.

Of course, you can also cook the turkey separately if you haven’t got leftovers, grilling is a pretty fast way. And feel free to use any other meat like chicken or beef, the recipe can be pretty flexible to one’s taste.  I really love pies of any kind, and if you are looking for a vegetarian option, l have these amazing Mini mushroom pies that look impressive and taste awesome.

Or another great favourite of mine is the classic Chicken and leek pie. What a treat that is! Pies are meant to comfort us like nobody else. There is no season when it comes o pie, any day we can make up and excuse to have some. So, if you excuse me now, l’m gonna demolish my yummy leftover pot pie. Nom, nom, nom!

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp semolina
