Cheddar and Leek Tarts

These were inspired by an @deliciousmag recipe which was very timely as I had some leeks and leftover filo pastry to use up in the fridge. Mine used cheddar and gruyere as we had no blue cheese. And very tasty indeed they were too 🙂

For 3 medium and 3 small tarts you need:
1/2 pack filo sheets
2 eggs
about 1/2 cup double cream
good handful grated cheddar
2 tbsp gruyere cut into small chunks
2 leeks, sliced
knob butter
salt and pepper

Begin by suateeing the leek in the butter till soft. Line some individual tart tins/muffin tins with the filo pastry. Lay the sheets in the tins – you’ll need about 4-5 sheets per tin to ensure no gaps/holes. Mix together the eggs, cream and seasoning and then add the cheddar. Place the cooked leeks in the base of the lined tins. Pour over the eggy, cheesy, cream mixture and then stud the top with the gruyere. Bake in a hot oven for about 15 mins till puffy, golden and crispy. Serve with salad and potatoes.
