Ingredients
  • 400g Extra Special Light & Lean Pork Sausages, cooked
  • 450g leftover cooked veg (we used cabbage and leeks)
  • 1tsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1tsp cornflour
  • 200ml stock made with 1 reduced-salt chicken stock cube
  • 1tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 200ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 320g sheet ready-rolled light puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1tsp water
  • 300g frozen peas
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.

  • Chop the sausages and leftover veg into equal-sized pieces.

  • Heat the oil in a large pan. Fry the onion until golden. Add the cornflour and stir well. Slowly add the stock and mustard, bring to the boil, then gently simmer for 5-8 mins to thicken. Add the milk, sausages and veg, season with black pepper and mix well.

  • Tip the mixture into a large pie dish. Wet the lip of the dish with water, lay the pastry on top and crimp the edges. Cut off any excess and score the top.

  • Brush the beaten egg over the pastry. Bake for 35-40 mins until the pastry is crisp and golden.

  • Cook the peas according to the pack instructions. Serve with the pie.
