Leftover Cheeseboard Pie

This is basically a lot of leftover cheese, some filo pastry, potato slices and onions. It’s most definitely NOT diet friendly but eating a warm slice (or 2 or 3) of this on a Sunday afternoon is seriously good! And what a perfect way of using leftover ends of cheese from your festive cheeseboard?

I don’t really have a recipe as this is just a gathering of left overs cooked in the oven and that’s the beauty – you can use whatever cheese you have in. Blue cheese will give it a strong flavour whereas a brie or Camembert, a creamy texture – the choice is yours!

The basic ingredients:

  • Left over cheese
  • 2 medium sized potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion cut into rings
  • Filo pastry
  • Melted butter


  • Get a pie dish and brush with melted butter.
  • Line with 3 sheets of filo pastry ensuring plenty of spare pastry hangs over all edges.
  • Put a single layer of potatoes across the bottom of the dish
  • Sprinkle the onion rings on top of the potato
  • Liberally chuck in the cheese on top and season with black pepper.
  • Fold over the sides of the filo pastry to cover the filling.
  • Brush with more melted butter.
  • Cook in the oven at 180fan for 20 mins until golden brown.

    Perfectly lovely although why you'd have lots of cheese left over is beyond me!
