Method

  1. Heat the butter in a large pan. Add the onion and cook for 8-10 mins until softened. Add the bacon and mushrooms, and cook until both are browned. Add the turkey mince, breaking up with a wooden spoon, and cook for another 5 mins until browned.

  2. Add the flour, stir for 1 min or so, then pour in the chicken stock and add the thyme. Mix well and cook over a medium heat for 1-2 mins until it boils and thickens slightly. Season to taste and set aside to cool for 10-15 mins.

  3. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Once cooled, divide the turkey mixture between 2 ramekins or mini pie dishes. Unroll the pastry and cut out 2 squares to sit on top. Press the edges down the side of the dishes and glaze with the egg yolk. Bake in the oven for 30 mins until golden and cooked through. Serve with wilted spring greens.

Tasty pie filling, I had a pack of just past date bacon and all other ingredients for the filling so just bought a 250g pack of Turkey minced thighs.
Followed filling as recipe, didn't add salt as I had more bacon and didn't need it.
Didn't have any pastry and couldn't be bothered to make any so popped in an oven proof dish and put par-boiled potato slices on the top then baked for about 40 minutes. Hearty and tasty supper for 3.
