Butterfingered Chef's Turkey Pie

Hello ! Today I want to share with you a recipe I am very proud of.  Trust me - it is simply delicious ! Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.  Simple to make and great for a family dinner. 

Ingredients : 

- Champignons
- Bacon
- Double Cream
- Rosemary
- Minced Turkey 
- Pepper 
- Chicken Broth Cube 
- Batatas (Sweet Potatoes) 
- Olive Oil  
- Fresh Bread Crumbs 
- Garlic 
- Shortcrust Pastry Sheet

Start of by heating up an oven to 200ÂșC. Slice the champignons and cook on oil of olive on high heat for 3-4 minutes. Remember to wash the champignons well. Cut bacon in any way you wish (you can have small pieces but I personally liked them quite big). Add bacon to champignons and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Wash, peel and slice sweet potatoes and arrange them at the bottom of the pie dish. You want the slices to be approximately 5 mm wide.  Cut the minced turkey into big pieces and add to the pan. Cook it for 4-5 minutes on a low heat until the turkey meat goes white but is not yet cooked throughout. Season with pepper. To a small pot pour double cream, add finely chopped rosemary, freshly ground pepper and 1/5 of a chicken broth cube, stir and on a low heat cook for 2-3 minutes. Keep stirring. When it's done pour the cream over the sweet potatoes. On top of that lay the turkey/bacon/mushroom mixture. Sprinkle some fresh bread crumbs and freshly minced garlic over the whole thing. Now it's the time to make use of shortcrust pastry sheets*. After arranging the pastry cover it with a thin amount of olive oil. Put in the oven for 35-40 minutes. 

* Remember to take the pastry sheets out of the fridge 30 minutes before the cooking time. When they're cold they break. 

I hope you will like my recipe ! Leave your thoughts on it in a comment and help me improve it !
