  Onion 1 Small
  Stuffed olives/1 tablespoon capers 6 , sliced

  Pepper To Taste
  Ground mace/Grated nutmeg 1 Pinch
For hot water crust pastry
  Flour 1 Pound (450 Gram)

  Sausage meat 8 Ounce (225 Gram)
  Cooked chicken/Turkey meat diced 12 Ounce
  Egg 1 , beaten to glaze
  Gelatin 2 Teaspoon

Directions

Mince together the veal or ham and onion.
Add the olives or capers, salt, pepper and spice and mix well.
Roll out three-quarters of the dough and use to line a greased 20 to 23 cm/8 to 9 inch loose-based cake tin or game pie mould.
Lay the sausagemeat on the bottom, then cover with the chicken or turkey, pressing it down slightly.
Add the minced mixture.
Roll out the rest of the dough and place on top of the pie.
Press the dampened edges together to seal.
Make a hole in the centre and decorate the top with the dough trimmings.
Brush with beaten egg.
Bake in a preheated moderately hot oven (200 C/400 F, Gas Mark 6) for 30 minutes.
Brush again with beaten egg, reduce the temperature to moderate (160 C/325 F, Gas Mark 3) and continue baking for 1 hour if using ham, or 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours if using veal.
Cover the pie with greaseproof paper or foil when it is browned.
Dissolve the gelatine in the stock.
As the pie cools, fill it with the stock mixture through the hole in the lid.
Cool completely, then chill.
