Wondering what to do with that leftover roast in your refrigerator? Here's your answer: Use it in a delicious filling for a savory pie. You'll also need some sausage and basic aromatics (onion, garlic, carrot); tomato paste adds depth of flavor. The dough is quickly prepared in a food processor, then layered with the filling in a pan and baked until delightfully golden. Serve warm.


  • 400 grams leftover meat (cooked)
  • 1/2 pork sausage (smoked)
  • 1 onion (small, chopped)
  • 3 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 1 medium carrot (grated)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 eggs
  • 300 grams flour
  • 60 milliliters olive oil
  • 250 milliliters milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Filling Preparation:
  2. In the food processor, chop the meat with the smoked pork sausage. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, add the onion, garlic cloves, carrot, olive oil, and tomato paste.
  4. Mix and stew on medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Add the chopped meat, and mix.
  6. Set aside.
  7. Pastry Preparation:
  8. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  9. Grease a round pan with olive oil, and sprinkle with flour. Set aside.
  10. In the food processor (you don't even need to wash the bowl), mix all the ingredients until you get a smooth dough.
  11. Line the pan with part of the dough and cover with the meat.
  12. Spread the remaining dough on top of the meat, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden.
  13. Remove from oven and unmold.
