Bernard Matthews recently sent us a Golden Norfolk Whole Turkey to see if we could rise to the challenge of creating a tasty meal with our turkey leftovers. I am always up for a challenge, especially a food related one, and as soon as the turkey had defrosted we enjoyed a lovely practice run of roast turkey and all the trimmings. I am always looking to create more easy leftover turkey recipes and so this sounded like the perfect challenge for us!

Roast Turkey

What do you do with leftover roast turkey?

Over the last few years of cooking Christmas dinners in the kitchen I have become accustomed to having so many Christmas leftovers and leftover turkey being a big part of that. Finding ways to use it up is always a challenge and we now have a tradition of having Jamie Oliver’s Turkey and Leek Pie on Boxing Day. Through the year though I love to make turkey soup or a Turkey and Sausage Stew in the slow cooker which could easily incorporate leftover turkey instead of buying turkey especially.

I’ve also made that turkey stew into easy turkey pot pies before with a puff pastry lid – I really do love turkey and think it is an incredibly versatile and undervalued meat. For this challenge I decided to cook something completely different from our other pie recipes – a wonderfully creamy turkey pie that the whole family will love. And you just can’t beat the turkey bacon combination!

For this recipe we tend to use standard back bacon rashers but you could use streaky bacon instead or any bacon or ham leftover from the festivities.

This Creamy Turkey, Sweetcorn and Bacon Pie Recipe would be great to make after Christmas or with the leftover thanksgiving turkey and is just so easy to make with such a delicious creamy filling.

As it has a potato top it doesn’t have a traditional pie crust but it’s wholesome, filling and perfect for a winter dinner or family get together. It’s lovely on its own or served simply with some green vegetables or steamed frozen mixed vegetables. I hope you enjoy it!
