I first made this "pie" in the early 1990's when it appeared in an issue of Victoria magazine. It was Charles Dickens' favorite dish. That recipe also called for onion and sage leaves.
The pie has a thin broth (not like a thick American gravy potpie) and tastes so wonderful. It is now my favorite dish to make in the autumn.

I saved that issue of Victoria magazine from January 1993 and pull it out every fall and winter. Making it tomorrow from leftover New Year's ham. Delicious!
