NOTHING WASTED NEW YEARS PIE - RECIPE

This can be as big as you like or depend on what you have left over. The ingredients are somewhat optional but the method will give great results.

1 leftover bag of potatoes
1 leftover bag of carrots
Any other left over root vegetables
Whatever is left of the turkey meat chopped or minced
Whatever is left of any cold meats chopped or minced
Whatever is left of the pate
3 medium onions
2 cups of frozen peas or tinned
Remains of cheeseboard grated or crumbled
1 can of ale
1 or 2 glasses of wine
3 chicken stock cubes (or you can boil up the turkey carcass and skin to make stock you may still new a cube)
1 heaped desert spoon of basil
1 heaped desert spoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Or
2 desert spoons of mixed herbs
Black pepper
Salt
tub of cream
block of butter
Olive oil

Mix all the meat and pate together with the herbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl and cover with red wine. Seal the bowl with cling film and put somewhere cold. Leave for 24 hours Revisit the mixture occasionally and shake it.

The following day: Peel and dice all the root vegetables then place in a large pan of water bring to the boil and simmer until soft. Drain (keeping at least a pint of stock) and stir in half the grated cheese and cayenne pepper. Cover and leave.

Chop the onions and fry gently in olive oil until they begin to brown. Sieve the meat mixture saving the wine marinade then add the meat to the onions. Stir in well. Add the ale and allow it to simmer. When the liquid begins to reduce (thicken) add the vegetable stock and leave to simmer until it begins to reduce again. Add the red wine marinade and the peas and allow to simmer for ten minutes or until it begins to thicken. If the mixture does not thicken add a desert spoon of corn flour dissolved in a little milk and stir in well.

Pour the mixture into a large baking dish or tin and leave to cool.

Add the butter and cream to the root vegetables and mash vigorously then carefully coat the meat mixture with the mash before sprinkling the remaining cheese on top. It can then be left until time to cook for your guests. Then simply place the pie in a medium oven for 30 to 45 minutes and serve.
