This delicious turkey pie is something a little different from the usual turkey curry!

turkey pie

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 pie with feta, 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 turkey 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 !

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.
