Ingredients
  • 400g leftover turkey, shredded
  • 600g leftover mashed potato
  • 200g leftover roast parsnips
  • 25g pack flat-leaf parsley
  • 1tbsp dried sage
  • 1tbsp plain flour
  • 8 slices Parma ham
  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 100ml leftover gravy
  • 2tbsp madeira or port (optional)
Method
  • In a large bowl, mix the leftover turkey, mashed potato, roast parsnips, parsley, chopped and sage. Season with black pepper.

  • Shape the mixture into 8 patties and lightly dust with the flour. Take the Parma ham and wrap 1 around each patty, then set aside.

  • Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over a medium setting. Working in batches, fry the patties for 4 mins on each side until the ham is crisp. Cover and keep in a warm place while you fry the remaining patties.

  • Whisk together the gravy and madeira or port (optional).

  • Once all the patties are cooked, add the gravy mixture to the empty pan. Simmer for 5 mins until you have a thick, glossy sauce.

  • Serve 2 patties per person with a drizzle of the madeira gravy and a green salad on the side.
