Leftover Turkey Pie

Not sure what to do with your Christmas leftovers?

Our Leftover Turkey Pie is the perfect boxing day treat. We've opted for the convenience of ready-rolled puff pastry (a saviour for any post-celebration weariness), but feel free to make yours from scratch if you feel up to it.
