Bacon and Leek Pie


(6 servings)
1 packet Ready-to-use pastry
2 Onions
140 g Smoky bacon
2.5 dl Single cream
half Leek
2 Eggs
50 g Grated cheese


Turn on the over to 200 o C. Chop the bacon and fry in a hot pan. You shouldn't need any other fat. Add the chopped onions and fry for a couple of minutes. Pour over the cream and leave to simmer for 10 - 15 minutes. Add the chopped leek to the cream mixture and simmer for a couple more minutes. Season with salt and pepper and leave to cool a bit. Meanwhile roll out the pastry and line a 25 cm round pie dish. If you don't want to cheat then make your own pastry - every recipe book has a pastry recipe. Personally I am a very bad pastry maker and try to avoid it if I can. Precook the pastry for about 6 minutes. Now stir in the beaten eggs to the cream mixture and pour into the pastry base. Sprinkle with cheese cook at the bottom of the oven for about 20 minutes.


Serve with a good crunchy green salad.
