    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 2 large leek, sliced



    Like garlic and onion, leeks are a member of the allium family, but have their own distinct…

  • 2 rashers back bacon, chopped
  • 1 x 210g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp Dijon or wholegrain mustard
  • 2 slices firm Welsh goat's cheese, from a 100g log (we used Pant-Ysgawn Farm organic goat’s cheese)


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then soften the leeks for 5 mins. Add the bacon, cook for a further 5 mins, season, then tip onto a plate to cool.

  2. Unroll the pastry and cut out two 12 x 18cm rectangles – save or freeze the rest for another time. Lift onto a baking sheet. Using the tip of a sharp knife, mark a border inside each one, about 1.5cm from the edge.

  3. Mix the crème fraîche and mustard together, then spread over the inside of the pastry frames. Spoon the leek and bacon mix over the mustard mix, then place the goat’s cheese on top. Bake for 15-20 mins until the pastry is crisp and golden. Serve with salad.

Made this for a dinner party last night. Didn't change a thing apart from adding a bit more goats cheese. Instead of individual tarts, I also made one large one and it was plenty big enough for a starter. Served with a mixed leaf salad. Gorgeous!

Light and tasty. I needed to use up a couple of leeks and some goats cheese and this fitted the bill perfectly. I made it with grainy mustard and veggie bacon then served it with steamed broccoli and kale. Will make again

This can't be a vegetarian dish if it contains bacon

amazing easy recipe and tasty. i am not a great cook and my guests loved this. the pastry seemed too thin to press in with a knife so i just pinched the sides to make the ridge...seemed to do the trick well. i also doubled the potions which made good man sized potions for 3. yum.

Lovely recipe. My boyfriend also loves it! I'm veggie so i skipped the bacon and added mushrooms to mine. i served with paprika roasted new potatoes and green beans.

Would love to have the amount of ingredients for a whole pan tart of this.

This made an excellent family summer lunch, the flavours were just right, tasty but light. but I made it with shortcrust pastry (I cheated and used ready made pastry....(far too hot to be stuck in the kitchen!!!) and like before made a big one instead of individual ones, served it with jersey royals and a rocket salad. Will defo be making it again very soon.

Really quite easy to make. Easily adaptable to a vegetarian dish (veggie bacon can be used just like normal bacon). Very very tasy - mustard & creme fraiche very good touch!

I increased the quantity of ingredients, and made one big one, then cut it into portions as a starter, served with rocket salad & balsamic vinegar drizzled over the top.

Just made this as a starter for an anniversary meal. Both of us really liked it. Didn't and wouldnt change a thing :-)

I really enjoyed this, although I used cubed pancetta in the fridge instead of bacon as I had it in the fridge. Very easy.

Great recipe. Yummy and very quick to make. i loved the mixture of the bacon, goat's cheese and leeks. Very easy to turn it into a veggie dish too. I made one big tart that I cut into portions instead of making individual sized ones which i think made it a lot easier. It was great the next day for lunch as well. Would recommend.
