Made this with puff pastry and used spring onions instead of leeks. Added chorizo and mushrooms to the filling. It was DELICIOUS! Would definitely recommend adding the chorizo for extra flavour.

Yum. Easy and pretty quick. Used ready rolled low fat puff pastry and sliced and cooked the sausages with the leeks to avoid extra washing up and cleaning the grill. Also used wholemeal flour.

Lovely, made it last night and it all went. As suggested above brushed the pastry with milk, my husband couldn't believe that I'd actually made the pastry.

gorgeous pie! i loved it.
will warn that it was very filling though, so you don't need too many sides!

My other half LOVED this. I wil definately make this again. I did 2 individual pies and forgot to put the parsely in but it tasted fine. I also added some creme fraiche in to the pie filling just before putting the pastry on as I was worried it would be too dry. It came out lovely. Oh and I brushed the pastry with milk as suggested too.

I used /trex in the pastry rather than butter, just because I had some in the fridge - not sure which is best.

The pie was a big hit with my hubby - a yummy winter warmer.

My very first attempt at a pie - was hard work but very tasty.
I'd brush the pastry top with milk or something to make it bake better (mine was quite dry) but I'd definitely try this again.

A good way to use sausages!

excellent, I made this with left over roast pork and used a savory short pastry, it was delicious. I didn't dare tell my dinner party how easy it was!
