Ham and Mushroom Pie (Serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • knob of butter
  • 300g mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 2 leeks, washed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. of flour (optional)
  • 350ml cream
  • 1kg cooked ham, cut into large chunks (1kg ham will take about 45-50mins to cook in simmering water)
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • bunch of flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1 sheet of short pastry
  • 1 egg beaten
  • salt and pepper
  • oil

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 190ºC
  • Heat a pot over a medium to high heat, once hot add a little oil and butter and then add the mushrooms (you may have to do this in 2 batches). Cook these for about 5 minutes over this heat. This will help to give the mushrooms a nice brown colour. Once they have browned turn the heat down low and add a little more butter followed by the onions and pinch of salt. Cook this slowly for about 5 minutes. After this add the leeks and again cook slowly for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the flour if you are using it. Next add the cream, give it a stir with a wooden spoon. Bring this to the boil and bring it down to a simmer. Season this with a little salt and pepper, cook it for about 5 minutes. This will allow the liquid to thicken.
  • Add the ham pieces, mustard and herbs to the pot and take it off the heat.
  • Roll out the pastry.
  • Pour the contents of the pot into an oven dish. Cover the dish with the sheet of pastry. Trim the edges to fit the dish, use a fork to push the pastry to the edges of the dish. Use a small knife to cut a little circle in the middle of the pastry. Brush this with some egg wash.
  • Bake this in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. The pastry should be golden at this stage.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
