Bacon, Cheese and Leek Tart
Recipe From What's For Lunch, Honey?
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
- Preheat oven to approx. 180 degrees C. Lightly brush the tart form with some melted butter and line it with the puff pastry.
- 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.
- 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.
- Take out of oven and serve immediately with a large salad.
