Method

  1. To make the filling, preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7/fan 200C. Slice your potato leftovers as best you can, then blanch the leek in boiling water for 3 minutes and drain. If you don’t have any leftovers, peel, halve and thickly slice a baking potato, then boil for 8 minutes, adding the sliced leek for the last 3 minutes. Drain. In a large bowl, mix the potato, leek, horseradish sauce, crème fraîche, ham and thyme, mushing up the potato slightly, then season well.

  2. To make the pie, unroll the pastry rectangle onto a baking sheet. Pile the filling along the length of one half of the pastry, leaving a small gap on the outside edge. Brush milk round the edges of the pastry. Fold the uncovered side over the filling, then press the pastry edges together well, using the prongs of a fork, to seal. Make a few 6cm diagonal slashes in the top. (The pie can now be frozen for up to a month.)

  3. To bake the pie, brush the pie with the remaining milk and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Leave to relax for a couple of minutes then cut into slices and serve with a green salad.

Husband and son dont like horseradish or leeks so substituted an onion and cranberry sauce, and also added some left over stuffing balls. Went down very well, and very quick to make

This turned out lovely. I added some grated strong cheddar to the recipe as well. The horseradish sauce gives it a lovely flavour

Great way at using leftovers. It is creamy and the flavours of the leeks, horseradish and ham work well. I used a beaten egg to glaze my pastry instead of milk and it came out the oven golden brown. I served this with honey roasted beetroot and some leftover red cabbage which worked well together. My husband and I loved this and we both had seconds. I will definitely be making it again sometime soon for mid week meals.

I made this 2 months ago and it was really tastey, I froze half the amount for a night when i had no time to cook. It is was still really tastey. I would make it again and freeze it again.

An ideal way to use up leftovers, you do not need to stick to specified filling.

A lovely recipe and not just for Christmas. I have cooked this in summer with a salad and experimented with different types of pastry.
