Recipe for St. Stephen's Day Pie with Duchesse Potato. This traditional Irish recipe is handy to have around after Thanksgiving as it uses leftover turkey.


  • 2 pounds cold turkey meat
  • 1 pound cold ham or bacon
  • 1 ounces (1/4 stick) butter
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 cup poultry stock
  • 1 1/4 cups turkey gravy
  • 8 ounces small button mushrooms
  • 4 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • 4 teaspoons chopped chives
  • 2 teaspoons marjoram or tarragon
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 pounds Duchesse Potato (click this link for recipe)


  1. Cut the turkey and ham into approximate 1" pieces. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan, add the chopped onions, cover and sweat for about 10 minutes until they are soft, but not browned. Meanwhile, wash and slice the mushrooms.
  2. When onions are soft, stir in the garlic and remove to a plate. Increase the heat and cook the sliced mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and add to the onion and garlic.
  3. Toss the cold turkey and ham in the hot saucepan, using a little extra butter if necessary. Add the mushrooms and onions. De-glaze the saucepan with the turkey stock. Add the cream and chopped herbs and bring to a boil. Add gravy, meat, mushrooms and onions and simmer for 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  4. Pour filling into a pie plate and top with potatoes (for a decorative effect, pipe the potatoes with a pastry bag). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until potato is golden and the pie is bubbling.
