This year, Josée di Stasio suggests a new twist on Christmas turkey. Her leek,mushroom, and turkey pie is the ideal yet simple dish for entertaining. Served alongside a beet salad, this festive dish will be a holiday hit.
To serve, place the pie in the centre of the table and offer each guest any size slice they desire. And serve the beet salad in large salad bowls.
To freeze the pie, fill freezer bags with the turkey mixture. Thaw the mixture in the fridge for 24 hours before the big dinner, transfer it to a baking dish, and top it with pastry crust. Bake the pie in the oven and serve.
How about lovely single-serving pies? All you need is little casseroles or individual-size pie pans. Cut the pastry dough in circles or squares about 1 cm (1/2 in.) bigger than the diameter of the containers. Bake in the oven and serve.
