Leek, pea & cheese pie

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal). 
  • Cook the potato in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water until tender. Then drain well, roughly mash and set aside. 
  • At the same time, heat a little oil and the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the leek until also tender, stirring now and again. 
  • Then add the mashed potato, peas and grated cheese with a little salt. Stir until well combined. 
  • Beat the milk with the egg. 
  • Cut out two large pastry rounds and place one in a lightly oiled, large baking tray. Brush the edges with egg wash and spoon the mixture on top, leaving an edge. 
  • Then place the other pastry round on top, crimp the edges with a fork and generously brush all over with egg wash. Cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins. 
  • Serve with a salad on the side. 
  • nb.  You could make small pies, if you prefer.
