  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6/fan oven 180C. Mix the turkey, ham and frozen peas in a buttered ovenproof dish.

  3. To finish the dish, pour the sauce over the ingredients in the dish. Mix the remaining cheese with the nuts and sprinkle on top. At this point, you can keep the bake in the fridge up to 5 hours, or freeze it. When ready, bake for 25-35 minutes until the topping is golden and the sauce is bubbling.

Definately make it again. Lovely taste. I also served it with rice and left the nuts because i did not have any. Next time i will add a bit of cooked penne and see how it turns out.

This recipe was the best way to use up the leftovers from Christmas. I wish we had turkey and ham leftovers more often we all enjoyed this. Yummy!!!

I ended buying turkey breast without any idea what to do with it. I tried this recipe and it turned out a hit with my family though I made some adjustments like using white wine instead of sherry, using an onion/leek with the turkey and a garlic with the sauce. I served it with boiled rice. Fantastic flavours!!

I followed the recipe, but left out the nuts. We enjoyed this dish -the mustard and sherry flavours were quite subtle did not overpower the turkey and ham.

This was a real winner for a boxing day lunch - we made one as per recipe and one more child friendly/ fussy eater one minus mustard.
