Leek & chive tarts

Method

  • Preheat oven to 165°-170°C fan forced (185°-190°C normal).
  • Melt the butter in a large heavy-bottomed pan and sweat the leeks until softened.
  • Using a pastry cutter, cut rounds in the pastry and then gently press in a lightly oiled muffin tray/s.
  • Place the leeks on a clean workbench, to cool a little, and mix with 2-3 tbsp chopped chives and seasonings.
  • Whisk the eggs with the cream and parmesan.
  • Put tablespoons of the leek mixture into the moulds and carefully pour the egg and parmesan mix on top. Then cook in the oven for about 10 mins until just cooked.
