I have made this and it is so tasty! Didn't include the bacon - but apart from that made it exactly as the recipe. I made it and froze uncooked, then defrosted overnight and cooked in the oven for half an hour. Came out perfect! Delicious served with roast meats as a tasty side.

Yum yum yum! Easy, quick and really tasty for a zero effort tart for a lunch with some salad. Used a well known soft cheese begining with Phil, pancetta cubetti, a mix of Emmenthal and Cheddar (lots of!) and fresh Thyme on top and it was very well received!

Have just made this tonight and it really is a tasty treat! Used smoked pancetta cubes which I added to the leeks during the last few minutes of cooking and this really helped the leeks soak up the flavour of the pancetta. Yumz! Read other comments about how it was a bit fiddly trying to spread the cheese on the pastry base so I used a fork to loosen the cheese and left it out at room temp shortly before assembling the tart. It spread very easily as a result. Oh yes, I also crumbled some feta cheese on top along with the cheddar cheese which added a different texture to the end result! Served it with a green salad. All in all a delicious tart which the whole family enjoyed. Will definitely make it again.

Easy to make and very tasty. Definitely worth a try. Made with cheddar, as it was all I had on hand, it was great.

So simple and quick and great for a social lunch such as we had at Easter. Used Boursin garlic and herb and not easy to spread evenly but good enough. Fried leeks in oil and butter mix with some ground black pepper at end. Used cheddar cheese and was popular with all the family.

I read the above comments so used up left over brie & plain Philly on the base. The leeks were cooked in a mixture of oil & butter with fresh thyme & black pepper. I used up a pkt of parma ham and the whole lot was covered with a mixture of grated cheeses, mainly cheddar & parmesan. Delicious!
