Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Fry the sausages in a large frying pan until browned all over, remove and set aside. Remove most of the fat left in the pan, then add leeks and soften for 8-10 mins. Add the peeled apple slices and cook for 1 min more. Stir in the flour, followed by the mustard. Pour over the stock and bubble for 2 mins to make a sauce.

  2. Chop the sausages into chunks and stir into the pan. Then, tip everything into a large ovenproof dish. Top with the pastry, trimming off any excess and glaze with the egg. Bake for 25 mins until golden.

How thick or thin should I slice the apple?

I changed the sausage for pork cheek cuts and it was delicious!
I have also used dijon instead of grain and the result was outstanding.
It has quickly become a family favourite :)
An excellent recipe - thanks.

I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty this pie was! As other people have said, the photo doesn't do it justice. The sauce is thick and delicious and the flavours are fantastic. I used less pastry than the recipe suggested and managed to get it under 500 calories per portion. Check it out on my blog http://www.curlyscooking.co.uk/?p=1791

This is such a tasty pie - I really enjoyed it after my partner & his son made it for me (which means it's also straight forward to do - no offence to them!). Definitely a repeat visitor to our table & could easily be varied up with different toppings.

Made this for dinner today, it was really tasty, but if I do it again, I would be careful not to boil the sauce for too long. It was a little on the sticky side rather than a thick gravy, so tasted a bit dry. That said, it was a lovely combination of flavours, especially with the sausages having leeks in too!

Ive changed the leeks to carrots and added 300ml of water for more of a sauce, smells amazing, cant wait to eat it! Very easy to make!

Good gardener’s pie. Used a sharp cooking apple, annually supplied from a neighbour’s trees and thickened the home made stock with black pudding. Made my own shortcrust.

The picture looks pretty bad. I'm presuming the sauce will be thicker, going to try this week and find out.

Agreed - the picture doesn't do it justice at all! I hope you enjoyed!

Made this pie for Sunday lunch and served with a mash of white potato, swede and carrot – it was delicious and the apple added such a good sweetness. Highly recommended!

Very good. I used suet pastry.

What kind of stock did people use?

nynaeve2k's picture

Chicken stock - generally a good choice to go with pork.

I'm not a big fan of sausages but I loved this! As did my family. Really easy and not expensive too.

Looked much better than the picture! Served with the roast sweet potato & garlic mash on this site.
