Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Bacon & Leek Tart, Zingy Potato Salad

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle

Chop the bacon roughly

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chopped bacon and cook for 3-4 min or until starting to crisp

2 Bacon & Leek Tart, Zingy Potato Salad

Meanwhile, wash the leek[s] carefully to remove any grit from between the leaves, then top, tail and slice finely

Once the bacon is starting to crisp, transfer to a plate and set aside until later

Add the chopped leek to the pan with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until softened

3 Bacon & Leek Tart, Zingy Potato Salad

Meanwhile, add the soft cheese to a bowl with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] boiled water and season with a pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up

4 Bacon & Leek Tart, Zingy Potato Salad

Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper

Lay the puff pastry on the tray

Score a 1cm border around the edge of the pastry with a knife

Tip: The pastry border will puff up to give you a nice crust!

5 Bacon & Leek Tart, Zingy Potato Salad

Spread the soft cheese over the pastry within the border

Add the softened leeks and top with the bacon

Put the tray in the oven for 25-30 min or until the pastry is cooked through and puffed up – this is your bacon & leek tart

6 Bacon & Leek Tart, Zingy Potato Salad

While the tart is in the oven, cut the potatoes (skins on) into bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of plenty of boiled water with a pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, cook for 12-15 min or until fork tender

Once done, drain and return to the pot to steam dry

7 Bacon & Leek Tart, Zingy Potato Salad

Once the tart is done, add the white wine vinegar to the potatoes with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt and give everything a good mix up

Gently mix the rocket through – this is your zingy potato salad
