I had some leftover poached turkey and some ham which needed using the other day and so I decided to make a Ham and Turkey Pie. I thought that it would be fabulous and I was right! You could also use chicken, but with the holidays coming up I thought it would be nice to show you it with turkey.
This is so simple to make and so delicious!
Todd just loves it. It's as simple as layering 1 cup each of cubed ham and cubed turkey in a pie dish with some cooked peas. You could also add carrots if you wanted to.
A deliciously creamy sauce gets ladled over top. It's flavoured with aromatics . . . spring onions and celery and thyme . . . so good.
And then it is topped with an all butter short crust pastry and baked. Oh boy . . .
It is some good! I served it with some boiled potatoes and carrots . . . chantenay carrots to be exact. They are so sweet and tender. I love them. No need for butter or anything . . . just sweet carrots with a bit of seasoning . . .
Doesn't that look good? I think this is one of Todd's favourite pies that I make. And, I have to confess . . . it is one of my favourites as well. I am pretty confident that if you make it, it will become one of your family favourites also! It's a great way to turn leftovers into something really special.

I really think you are going to love this. Salty ham, sweet turkey in a rich and flavourful sauce, tucked beneath a buttery flaky crust! I will be most surprised if you don't! Bon Appetit!
