50 g

15 ml

whole meal flour



pinch salt


turkey pieces (boned weight)

vegetable oil

small onion, finely chopped

low fat soft cheese

canned sweet corn, drained

stuffed green olives, chopped

chopped parsley milk to glaze

salt and ground black pepper

milk to glaze

Method :

To make the pastry, mix together the flour and salt and rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Mix with just enough water to form a firm dough. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the turkey over moderate heat, turning often, for about 15-20 minutes, until pale golden on all sides. Add the onion and fry for 3 minutes. Leave to cool. Mix together the soft cheese, sweet corn and olives, season with salt and pepper and stir in the parsley. Heat the oven to 200C (400F), Gas 6.

Grease a baking tray. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to make an oblong about 30 by 18 cm. Put the cooled turkey along one half of the pastry and cover with the cheese mixture. Moisten the edges of the pastry with water and fold over to enclose the filling completely. Press the edges together to seal and trim to make a neat parcel.

Carefully place the pastry, with the seam underneath, on the baking tray and brush with milk. Reroll any trimmings, cut into leaf shapes and arrange in a pattern on the pastry. Brush with milk. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry is firm. To serve hot, transfer to a heated serving dish. Or allow to cool slightly, transfer to a wire tray and leave to become cold. Slice thickly.
