This recipe is a great way to use up that left over Turkey. A delicious Turkey and Leek pie. Ideal for a Boxing Day Lunch.

This Festive Pie is also a great alternative for those guys who are not traditionalists and would prefer a more unconventional Christmas Lunch. It can be served with all of the Festive trimmings , Sprouts , Pigs 'in' Blankets and of course light crispy roast potatoes.
