Servings 6


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 leek chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 3 carrots chopped or use leftovers
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 300 g ham leftover cooked
  • 100 ml white wine or chicken stock
  • 250 ml Cream
  • 200 g Puff Pastry rolled
  • 1 egg wash


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180˚C.
  • In a large sauté pan, over medium – high heat, drizzle some oil and add the onion, garlic, leek carrots and thyme.
  • Season with salt and pepper and sauté for 2 -3 minutes until lightly coloured.
  • Add in the ham and cook a further 2 minutes.
  • Pour the white wine and cream. Bring back to the boil and simmer for a further 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer into a ceramic or oven safe dish.
  • Brush the edges of the dish and cover with the puff pastry. The egg wash will help sealing the edges.
  • Again, brush the top with some egg wash and decorate the top if desired. With a knife or a stick, make a small incision on the middle top of the pastry to let steam escape during baking.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 20-35 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly before serving.
