Bacon, Cheese and Leek Tart

Ingredients

1 portion puff pastry for a tart form approx. 20cm diameter
Some melted butter
300g soft herb flavored cream cheese, we used 2 portions of Boursin Shallots & Chives
150g smoky bacon, cut into small cubes
3 leeks, sliced
100g Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Preheat oven to approx. 180 degrees C. Lightly brush the tart form with some melted butter and line it with the puff pastry.

  2. Sauté bacon cubes until crisp and golden then add the leeks and continue to sauté for just a minute so that the leeks soak up the fat from the bacon. Check for seasoning and salt and pepper according to taste. Set aside.

  3. Spread the cream cheese onto the pastry, then add the bacon-leek mixture over the top. Sprinkle with grated parmesan and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden and crispy.

  4. Take out of oven and serve immediately with a large salad.
