Last Boxing day we made a huge earthquake of a decision to NOT having the annual Turkey curry on Boxing day, and decided on having a Turkey and Feta pie, which was actually fanflipping tastic !
Feta can be picked up for under a pound, and I also added an aubergine to bulk it out and add a bit of goodness. I also used some ready made pastry, which was fab as it was under £1 and I made two pies out of it !
Push the boat out and have it with some homemade chips and you have a corker of a meal, and for pennies may I add !. The pie didn’t take long to put together and it is compulsory to finish of the last of the mulled wine, while you are making it !
You will need….
A nice sized portion of cooked turkey diced
1 aubergine diced
1 onion diced
2 peppers dice
Handful of chopped dill
Half a slab of feta cheese.
Tin of tomatoes
2 chicken or veg stock cubes
I beaten egg
Fry the onions in olive oil until soft, then add aubergine and cook for about 3 minutes.
Add the tomatoes , peppers and stock cubes and simmer for around 3 minutes.
Add the spices, turkey, dill and feta. Give it a good stir, the cheese will melt into the mixture, and let it simmer while you prepare the pastry.
Move the mixture into a pie dish and let it cool for five minutes.
Cover with the pastry, seal the edges and poke some holes in the top.
Brush with the beaten egg and I used some decorated with some caraway seeds to decorate the pie.
Pop it in a medium setting on a preheated oven for around 20 mins,,,but keep an eye on your pastry.
This is fab served with some rocket glazed in a balsamic dressing and real, homemade Fat chips !
This is also a great Leftover Turkey Recipe !
