1 pack HECK Simply Chicken sausages

½ pack HECK Chorizo sausages

250g sliced leeks

40g butter

40g plain flour

400ml warm chicken stock

100ml double cream

Shortcrust pastry



  1. Cook the leeks over a medium heat with a dash of oil until they have softened.  Add the butter and melt completely then mix in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes stirring constantly.  Gradually pour in the chicken stock and stir as the sauce thickens.  Finally, add the double cream and remove the sauce from the heat.
  2. As the leeks are cooking, fry the sausages together until they’ve browned on the outside.  Slice each of the chorizo sausages into 4 and pop into a shallow oven proof dish along with the chicken sausages.  Pour over the leek sauce.
  3. Roll out the shortcrust pastry and place over the pie filling.  You can have some fun with the spare bits of pastry and write a name or fashion a design, but otherwise just brush the top with a dash of milk and pop into a preheated oven at 180°C to cook for 25-30 minutes.
