Savoury Christmas slice
This warming recipe is perfect for using Christmas leftovers.

400g leftover cooked potatoes (roasted or boiled)

1 leek, finely sliced

2 heaped tbsp horseradish

5 heaped tbsp crème fraîche

100g cooked ham, chopped into small pieces

Pinch of dried thyme

375g ready-rolled puff pastry, thawed

1 tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas mark 7.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and set aside.

Chop your potato leftovers then bring a kettle to the boil.

Cook the leek in boiling water for 3 minutes and drain.

In a large bowl, mix the potato, leek, horseradish, crème fraîche, ham and thyme, mashing up the potato slightly, then season well with salt and pepper.

Unroll the pastry onto the baking tray.

Pile the filling along the length of one half of the pastry, leaving a small gap on the outer edge.

Brush milk round the edges of the pastry.

Fold the uncovered side over the filling, then press the pastry edges together well, to seal.

Make a few slashes in the top.

Brush the pie with the remaining milk and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.

Allow to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
