This was a great way to use up some leftover pork roast and some leftover mashed potatoes. Since the roast already had a nice amount of thyme flavor, this recipe worked perfectly for it! Thank you for posting.
I made this with some ham that I needed to use up. I used chicken stock with no salt instead of the canned broth, to make up for the saltiness of the ham. I also used milk instead of cream. I would cut down on the thyme next time for sure. My husband has asked me to make it again!
This was a great recipe to use up some of the leftover Xmas pork! I made individual pies in small dishes and it was a big hit.
