Recipe

  1. Remember to defrost your meat. Defrost your meat in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on ‘defrost’ directly before use. 

    This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
  2. Mix the tomato passata or tinned tomatoes with the double cream or creme fraiche.

  3. In a wide shallow dish, lay thick slices of leftover turkey.

  4. Saute the peppers and mushrooms and layer on top of the turkey.

  5. Pour over the creamy passata, top with breadcrumbs mixed with grated parmesan, and drizzle with a little olive oil.

  6. Bake in a medium oven until the turkey is piping hot and the breadcrumbs are crisp and brown.
