Ingredients For Gammon Pie
2 Gammon steaks (approx 200g each) from Morley Butchers
5ml (1tsp) Olive oil
1 Onion, roughly chopped
2 Cox’s type eating apples, cored and cut into wedges
5 Fresh sage leaves, roughly chopped
5ml (1tsp) Mustard
150ml (¼pt) Cider or apple juice
6 New potatoes, scrubbed, cut into small cubes
12g (½oz) Butter
15ml (1tbsp) Flour
500g Pre-made packet flaky pastry
Cooking Method For Gammon Pie
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200ºC. Remove your pastry from the fridge allow it to warm up ready for rolling.
In a large pan heat the oil. Add the gammon or bacon chunks and onion and cook until it changes colour and is starting to brown and the vegetable starts to soften. Add the apples, sage, mustard, cider and potatoes. Combine well together and bring to the boil. Gradually add the small pieces of combined butter and flour. Stir to remove any lumps. The sauce should be glossy and will have thickened.
Divide the mixture between 4 individual pie dishes or make as one ‘family pie’
For individual pies cut the pastry into 4 and roll each out separately. Wet the top of the dish and roughly press the pastry onto the dish. Finish off the pastry trimming with a knive for neat finish, press the prongs of a fork all the way around the rim of the pie dish or you can leave draped over for a ‘rustic’ pie crust. Brush with some milk or a little beaten egg to get a glossy brown sheen on the finished dish.
Cook in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until risen, flaky and golden. Serve with some carrots and seasonal greens.
