 You can use any leftover meat for this dish.
 You can use mash instead of roast potatoes although we prefer the dish with roasties.
 The vegetables and other ingredients are just a suggestion, any leftovers from the roast will do.
 A balance of meat, potatoes and other vegetables works best.

If you are making the pastry in advance, wrap in cling film and refrigerate until required.
