Bacon, Leek & New Potato Tart



I was trying to use up a mish mash of ingredients in the fridge and this tart was the result.  I love bacon and leeks together and I put in the anya potatoes as I didn't want them to go to waste. It was lovely warm with a watercress salad and zingy dressing.

The Recipe

1 quantity of spelt pastry
a few anya pototaes, cooked for about 5 minutes then sliced
1 leek sliced
a few rathers of bacon, sliced and fried or grilled
1 small tub of double cream
1 egg
a good handful of freshly grated parmesan
about 1/2 a log of goats cheese (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 175c.   Make up a quantity of spelt pastry and line a rectangular or circular tart tin (with removable base).

2. Place the potatoes, leek and bacon over the base of the tart.  Beat together the cream and egg and mix over the parmesan.  Pour over the other ingredients in the tart.  Crumble over the goats cheese and season with pepper.

3. Bake for around 20 minutes until the filling is firm and slightly browned.

  1. Oh I've just got some spelt bread proving in the airing cupboard...it's interesting that your pastry recipe uses yeast...

    This looks so tasty...I don't eat red meat but can almost smell that bacon cooking...

    Enjoy your supper....

  8. I have the same challenge myself as we are going to France soon. What a superb tart, and a fantastic combination, I love leeks and bacon, a perfect match, and the addition of goats' cheese is inspired.

  12. Hello! Discovered your blog through The English Kitchen, and was greeted by this mouthwatering tart! I've always liked the idea of savory tarts, but never really seen an ingredient combo that I liked. Can't wait to try this one! I'll have to stick around for a while :) dimplesanddelights.blogspot.com
