  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • SAUCE:
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon or 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • CRUST:
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

  1. In a large skillet, saute the potatoes, onion, carrots and celery in oil for 8 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the turkey, peas, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper; heat through.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk, broth and cream. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the mustard, capers, herbs, nutmeg, salt, pepper and potato mixture. Divide among 6 greased 10-oz. ramekins.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry into a 13x9-in. rectangle. Cut into 6 squares. Place 1 pastry over each ramekin; pressing to seal edges. Beat egg and water; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, at 400° until golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
