1. Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced).

2. Line a baking dish with the puff pastry, leaving a bit to hang over the sides. Freeze while you make the filling.

3. In a bowl, combine the turkey, sour cream and vegetables.

4. In another bowl, combine the topping ingredients and set aside.

5. Make a sauce by mixing the butter and flour together in a medium-sized saucepan over a medium heat. Add the wine, stock and gravy. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for 5-7

minutes while stirring. It should be the consistency of thick gravy. Add to the turkey mixture.
