Very popular in France, hardly used in the States, we love leeks. Melt-in-your-mouth delicious – winter’s asparagus! This recipe is super easy to make and is perfect for next day lunch boxes if for some amazing reason you have any left!

What you need

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 leeks, thinly sliced
  • 375g pack ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 150g pack soft cheese with garlic and herbs
  • 4 rashers streaky bacon, snipped (optional)
  • 100g grated emmental

What you do

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then gently fry the leeks until soft, about 5 mins. Cool.
  3. Unroll the pastry onto a baking sheet.
  4. Spread the soft cheese over the pastry to within 3cm of the edges.
  5. Scatter over the leeks, bacon and grated emmental.
  6. Flip the edges of the pastry over the filling. Bake for 20 mins until golden.

That’s it!
