This is a small variation on pork sausage and apple pie. The only difference being that we used a small pork fillet and used half sweet potato and half normal potatoes for the mash.

Chef's notes

If the leeks are large and a little 'tired', freshen them by blanching them in boiling water for 3 minutes-this stops them drying out whilst they are being sautéed.
