Make topping per mashed potato instructions in TM Everyday cook book and pour on top of filling.

This was yummy - we ate all of it.
Next time cook teh celery for longer (add it earlier) as it was crunchy
This is partly inspired from a recipe in Friendly Food for chicken and leek puffs.
I also make the same mixture and serve it with pancakes
I was inspired to make a pie from a recipe on the thermomix forum. I need some lard though in order to make the puff pastry.
