Bacon, leek and cheese tart.

This is a quick and simple dinner is similar to flammkuchen, but with leeks.


  • 3 leeks, outer layer and ends removed, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g ready made puff pastry, either in a block or pre-rolled into a sheet
  • 4 tbsp cream cheese
  • 4 rashers of bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 125g Emmental cheese, finely grated


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (reduce by 15 degrees if a fan oven).
  2. Put the leeks and olive oil in a large frying pan and fry over a medium heat until they start to soften.
  3. Lay/roll the puff pastry out onto a baking tray.
  4. Spread the cream cheese around on the surface of the puff pastry, keeping about an inch at the edge free.
  5. Put the leeks over the cream cheese, followed by the bacon piece and then finally the cheese.
  6. Fold up the edges of the pastry so that they overlap the filling at the edges.
  7. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy with a fresh tomato or leaf salad.

Serves 3 to 4.
