5 cups stock
chicken
3 cups smoked ham

*
2 tablespoons vermouth
optional
*
3 each carrots
sliced
3 stalks celery
sliced
*
2 each sweet potatoes, or yams

1 each bay leaves
*
½ teaspoon savory

1 cup peas, frozen

½ cup sweet red bell peppers

cup butter
1 each onions

¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon dry mustard
3 cups turkey
cooked and cubed
*
1 x black pepper
freshly ground, to taste
*
1 x pastry
for 9" single crust pie
*
1 tablespoon milk

Directions

In Dutch oven, combine chicken stock, ham, vermouth (if using), carrots, celery, sweet potatoes, bay leaf and savory.

Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until carrots are tender crisp.

Add peas and red pepper and simmer for 2 minutes.

Drain, reserving liquid, then discard the bay leaf. Set the vegetable mixture aside.

Melt butter over medium heat and cook onion for 3 minutes until softened.

Sprinkle with flour and cook stirring for 3 to 4 minutes until lightly golden. Stir in mustard.

Gradually whisk in reserved liquid until smooth.

Increase heat to medium and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened and boiling.

Add reserved vegetable/ham mixture and turkey.

Season with salt & pepper to taste.

Pour into 12 cup casserole.

Roll out pastry ¼ inch thick on floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Arrange on top of casserole and brush with milk.

Bake on a baking sheet at 400℉ (200℃) for 30 to 35 minutes until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly.

What my mother-in law usually does:

I do variations on this without the ham but it is best with both.

I think I usually sauté the red pepper with the onions instead of adding them with the peas.

Sometimes I heat it without anything on top or you could use tea biscuits.
