It’s a given that after spending a while cooking on Christmas Day, it might be the last thing you want to be doing on Boxing Day. Our wood fired turkey cacciatore is super easy to throw together and requires minimal effort.

- 1tbsp sugar
- A splash of vinegar
- 500g of leftover turkey, shredded
- 1 ball of mozzarella
- 2 handfuls of breadcrumbs
Firstly you will need to get your wood fired oven fired up to its optimum temperature, then allow time to cool maintaining the heat at around 220°c.
Next fry the onion and garlic until soft, then add the tomatoes, sugar, vinegar and seasoning. Simmer for 20 minutes, and then pop in the turkey. Once your filling is well mixed together transfer to a high heat-baking dish.
Scatter over the mozzarella, breadcrumbs and some black pepper. Bake in your wood fired oven for 20 minutes until the top is nicely bubbling and the turkey is piping hot. If you’re really hungry serve with rice or pasta for the perfect Boxing Day dinner.
Turkey, Leek and Ham Pie
A pie is always a great way to use up leftovers after a big roast or dinner party. Our turkey, leek and ham pie is no exception. Remember; don’t let any veggies go to waste, even if its Brussels Sprouts, make use of it all, we promise it will taste delicious!
- Butter for frying
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 carrots
- 2 leeks
- 200ml of double cream
- 200ml chicken/turkey stock
- 500g leftover turkey
- Cayenne Peppers
- 2tbsp tarragon
- Sea salt and black pepper
- 225g puff pastry
- 1 free-range egg
- 2tbsp Parmesan
Before getting started on your pie you will need to fire up your oven to its optimum temperature. You will then need to allow time for your oven to cool until it reaches the perfect pie baking temperature of 200°c.
In a pan add in your butter and gently cook the onion until it’s soft. Next pop in your carrots and leek, cooking until your carrots start to soften. Now cover with the cream and stock, simmering until a thick sauce starts to form. Add the turkey, ham, mushrooms, cayenne and herbs. Give your pie filling a good old stir, then remove from the heat. Add salt and pepper to season.
You will now need to pour the filling into an ovenproof pie dish. Once you have done this it’s a great idea to roll out your puff pastry. Once rolled, place the pastry over the top of the pie dish pressing the sides firmly together to create a lid. Lightly brush the top with a beaten egg and add a dusting of Parmesan. Bake in your wood fired oven for 20-25 minutes and remove once your pie is golden brown in colour. Now all that’s left to do is devour your pie.
Cheesy Sprout Fondue
Sprouts might not be everyone’s favourite vegetable, but if they are covered in a warm gooey cheese fondue then it might be a different story. Our wood fired cheesy sprout fondue is simple but SO tasty. Try with any leftover veggies for a scrumptious Boxing Day snack.
- 500g Brussels Sprouts
- 100g pancetta
- 200g brie, chopped
- 100g full-fat cheese
- 100g Gruyere, grated (Cheese of your choice)
- 2tbsp Parmesan
- 2tbsp milk
- 2tbsp cornflour
- 2tbsp mustard
Firstly you will need to fire up your wood fired oven to its optimum temperature, maintaining the temperature at 200°c. Pop your sprouts into a large heat proof baking tray, drizzle them with oil and season. Tear the pancetta in half and wrap each piece around half of the sprouts. Roast in your wood fired oven for 20 minutes.
Whilst you are waiting for your sprouts to cook, pop the cheese, milk and cornflour into a food processor and give it a quick whizz. Stir through the mustard, then pop your mixture into a shallow ovenproof dish, scattering the top with the Parmesan. You will now need to remove your sprouts and allow your oven to cool until it reaches around 160°c.
Now all that’s left is for you to pop the cheese mixture into your wood fired oven baking for roughly 15 minutes. Once the fondue is golden brown on the top, you know its ready! Serve with crusty bread and generously dip in your roasted sprouts.
If you fancy something light after eating a feast on Christmas Day, then why not make a turkey and stuffing sandwich. You could even bake some fresh bread in your wood fired oven. Sandwich perfection!
