I’m fed up with making the usual chicken and veg or minced beef and onion.

Inspire me with your favourite fillings!

Torta Pasquelina - Italian Easter pie made with chard (or spinach, or both) and ricotta, with eggs cracked into the top before you put the ‘lid’ on and bake it.

Creamy leeks, mushrooms and bacon?

Roasted cherry tomatoes (Roast about 500g on tray in oven at 200°C for 20 minutes after tossing in a bowl with 2tbsp of olive oil, a thumbsize bit of butter, a tbsp of sugar, a tbsp of red wine vinegar, 10 cloves garlic, 5 shallots and plenty of thyme ) with feta and pitted black olives and basil.

Spinach and ricotta with toasted flaked almonds and roast garlic

@UrbaneSprawl - I'd forgotten about the eggs with spinach and ricotta - knew I was missing something - thx!

are you making proper pies, or just something hot with a lid?

Some lovely ideas, thanks. Going for the chicken broccoli and leek, with a cheesy sauce.

@ifailed making proper pies - shortcrust base but with a puff lid.

My favourite is cheese and onion.

Salmon broccoli with white wine cheese sauce. Also works well as a pasta bake....

Leftover chilli with extra peppers, courgette and a tin of baked beans if you need to bulk it out makes a great pie.

Vegetables in a cheesy sauce.

Leftover casserole. Although I tend to make individual pasties with this rather than a big pie.

Leftover haggis and neeps, mixed together, also make an amazing pie.

As you can tell, pies are my go-to of choice for leftovers!!
