Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes


50g butter/1 tbsp olive oil
450g British turkey breast fillets, cut into chunks
3 sweet potatoes, cut into chunk
225g chestnut mushroom
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
1 tbsp brandy
100ml chicken stock
150ml double cream
75g stilton, crumbled
375g pack ready rolled puff pastry
1 small egg, beaten/rock salt


Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan and fry the turkey for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned. Stir in the sweet potatoes and cook over a low heat for 8-10 minutes until just beginning to soften. Stir in the mushrooms, garlic, and half the thyme, and cook for a further 4-5 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200•C/Gas mark 6. Pour the brandy over the turkey mixture and allow to bubble for 1 minute, then add the stock and cream and warm through gently. Remove from the heat and stir in the stilton.

Unroll the pastry. Cut 4 pastry lids slightly larger than the 400ml dishes you are using. Divide the filling between the 4 dishes. Wet the rim of the dishes with water. Lay the pastry circles over the top and press to the rim firmly. Brush with beaten egg and scatter with rock salt and remaining thyme. Bake for 20 minutes until golden.
