I'd never attempted something like this before. I followed recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly. My girlfriend loved it and so did I. Next time I'll make a veggie version with maybe sun-dried tomatoes instead of ham.

Absolutly loved this, supposed to have 1/2 cold today for lunch but we polished it off in one go last night. I used wafer thin chorizo which I dry fried until crisping instead of ham. Wasn't sure what depth of tin so used a sponge cake tin which worked out just right. My base also didnt seem very cooked so may part cook first next time.

Couldn't believe how easy to make this was, and how delicious it turned out! It looked very professional, would like to try making it as incividual starter poritons for a dinner party, maybe with a few variations, although the original recipe was amazing.

Done this twice now. Firstly with ham - the taste just isn't strong enough. The second time I did it with chorizo which was far better. Would also work with smoked bacon. A strong blue cheese is essential if you want that taste to come through. Overall, an idiot proof dish that goes down well.

Try substituting steamed & cooled chopped spinach for the rocket, its fab! I think broccoli would be good as well. Its a very tasty & versatile dish.
