Gingerbread Day 2011: savoury

Yesterday, when recounting the gingery elements of Gingerbread Day 2011, I promised you epic pie. And lo, I present to you Christmas Pie:

Christmas Pie: 5 meats and counting

From bottom to top: gammon, turkey, sausagemeat and apple stuffing, more turkey, sausages wrapped in bacon. Gravy incorporated. If you’re vegetarian: apologies.

There was also a veggie Christmas Pie, of which I don’t have a picture: it involved layers of roast parsnip, thin slices roast sweet potato, and chestnut and cranberry stuffing, with onion gravy. The root vegetables were spiced with cinnamon, allspice, ginger and cumin. It was most tasty, and my fears that it would be overly sweet proved unfounded.

As ever, the meals one can concoct with Christmas leftovers are much better than the Christmas dinner itself.
