4 tbsp olive oil
6 sage leaves
3 onions, peeled and finely sliced
250g/9oz ready-rolled all-butter puff pastry
3 large cooked leftover roast potatoes (or boiled potatoes), quartered
150g/5½oz gruyère
Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.
Put the olive oil and sage leaves in a pan. Fry until crisp and then immediately remove the sage leaves and set aside.
Add the sliced onions to the same pan. Cook over a low to moderate heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and caramelised. Set aside.
Lay the puff pastry out on a lined baking tray and top with the caramelised onions, leaving a border all around. Top with the potatoes and grated gruyère. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Remove from the oven when golden-brown, garnish with the crisp sage leaves and serve.

This delicious casserole was inspired by Mr Slater Senior who used to cook a similar version every Christmas. This one’s full of winter veg and mushrooms, but it’s equally as tasty with a few bits of turkey or ham thrown in too.

2 onions
20g/1oz butter
sprig rosemary
pinch salt
2 tsp juniper berries
1 carrot
1 parsnip
½ swede
4 tbsp Marsala wine
2 tbsp plain flour
150g/5½oz canned chestnuts
2 bay leaves
400ml/14fl oz vegetable stock
freshly ground black pepper
4 chestnut mushrooms
handful dried porcini mushrooms
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp redcurrant jelly
1 pomegranate, seeds only, white pith removed
Roughly chop the onions and slowly soften in a casserole with a little butter. Meanwhile pick a sprig of rosemary into a mortar and pestle with a pinch of salt and the juniper berries. Give them a good bashing then add to the onions.
Now chop the carrot, swede and parsnip into hearty sized chunks, they are going to be the body of the stew, and add to the onions.
To build the sauce, tip in a few glugs of whatever Christmas wines you have to hand, here I particularly like Marsala. Add a spoonful of flour and stir in allowing it to cook through and thicken the sauce. Add the chestnuts, bay leaf and stock, season with freshly ground black pepper, then leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
Quarter the chestnut mushrooms; then add them to the pot along with a handful of dried porcini. This will give the stew a woody depth. Now for the finishing touches to the sauce add a spoonful of wholegrain mustard and redcurrant jelly, and let simmer for a further 20 minutes.
Finally serve with a scattering of pomegranate seeds over each helping.
