Renee G’s ideas for how to use leftovers from her Pilsner and Pie recipe:
Leftover Pot Pie
This pie was mostly devoured by the family, so the leftovers amounted to enough for about two people, as well as two sheets of puff pastry. I stretched this out to another meal for six by adding:
- two heads of broccoli
- two capsicum
- one can of condensed soup (celery flavoured)
Put the leftovers in a pot and add the can of soup. Add about half a can of water, and the cut the capsicum and broccoli into small chunks and add them to the mix. Cook on a medium heat until the broccoli is soft.
Cut the two sheets of puff pastry into 8 small squares and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until puffed up and brown.
Place the pie mixture into six bowls and put a piece of puff pastry on top. The kids all wanted extra pastry, so I cut the last two pieces in half and they ate those as well.
Chef Scotty B has a selection of interesting ideas on how to use the leftover mix from his recipe…
This is a blessing of the highest order. If you are like me and have bad spatial recognition, and generally always make too much food to eat on any one occasion, then this recipe will leave you with some left over chicken and leek mix to play with. There are so many applications for this I can’t even begin to give you recipes for them all. However if you were born with out even the slightest hint of a creative bone in your body I shall now bestow upon you amazing ideas for amazingness.
Boil up some pasta and reheat the filling for a luscious pasta dish. Make the worlds most decadent jaffles (that’s what Aussies call toasted sandwiches for those of you in Kiwi land). Make, wait for it,………. another pie! Mix in some curry paste when you reheat your filling and serve it on rice for a quick cheeky curry. Have it cold on toast at 1am after the excess consumption of your favourite socially acceptable mind altering substances. Or you could simply smear it on the naked body of your favourite human and have various members of the animal kingdom lick it from their trembling skin.
Enjoy your new found amazingness.
