This was really tasty. I didnt have any soft cheese, but had some sour cream left over so used that instead. I put 6 rashes of bacon on top as it also needed using.

A big success! I used boursin having read the other comments, but it was very difficult to spread on the pastry, so would use cream cheese next time. I also rather foolishly put all the leeks on, followed by the bacon and topped with all the emmenthal and would mix half the cheese in with the leeks next time, because it formed a bit of a crust and the cheese with the leeks would make it a bit more unctious. A definite keeper.

This recipe is really easy to do and tastes delicious. I added grated courgettes to the leeks when frying and used ham instead of bacon. The whole family loved it, including my two year old son.

A firm favourite, and even better cold the next day for lunch!

Made this last night for a very fussy sister in law who came back for seconds so if it gets her vote then this must be a winner. So easy and done in 20mins - my kind of recipe. I added courgette to the leeks, as we have a glut and this was great.

My husband loved this, it's as good cold as it is hot. I did use Boursin cheese instead of cream cheese and it was delicious, very difficult to not eat it all in one go.

I love this recipe but instead of the soft cheese I mix some creme fraiche and mustard to spread at the base. It's delicious! Particularly for those of you that think the soft cheese way might lack some flavour! I also add a bit of black pepper to the leeks/bacon mixture. Bloody gorgeous!

Would agree with using less cheese. Works well with grated cheddar or brie!
