Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C/400°F.
  2. Grease and line a pie dish with baking paper.
  3. Mix together your mashed potato, leeks, chicken, ham, crème fraiche & seasonings to taste. Set to one side.
  4. Roll out your pastry and line the base of the pie dish - allow the edges to extend over the edge of the pie dish.
  5. Put you filling into the pastry pie case - and sit your blackbird or pie funnel in the middle, pushing it down slightly so it is not too high.
  6. Turn back the pastry edges and make a raised crust all the way around. Dampen the piecrust with some of the beaten egg & milk mixture.
  7. Roll out your pastry for the lid - ease it over the top gently breaking OR cutting a hole for the blackbird to poke through!
  8. Turn back the edges of the pastry lid and neatly crimp the top together with the bottom - using a fork to help you if necessary.
  9. Brush the beaten egg and milk glaze over the top and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 45 minutes.
  10. Take out and allow to cool very slightly before serving with fresh vegetables & gravy. This is also wonderful cold as picnic food.
