Delicious. My leeks were a little on the large size, so only used two. I also added some nutmeg to the custard. :)

This was a yummy tart. I was also scared of making pastry, but this one is well worth it! The cheese and cayenne in the crust really add a nice flavor to this dish. A definite make again for the next family brunch. Made for ZWT6.

This was really divine! I have a confession to make, I have never, ever made home-made pastry dough of any kind. ::hanging head::: (hope I don't get kicked outta Zaar.) So, I did cheat and use store-bought. I also added some minced garlic (3 cloves) and some Herbs de Provence. And used extra-sharp cheddar and the half-and-half. We had this today with BLT Salad and will have the left-overs for breakfast. Thanks for posting, Jacquee! LOL Made for ZWT 6.

A wonderfully flavoursome savoury tart! I love leeks and the inclusion of 4 leeks in this recipe really commanded my attention. :) I've learnt that even better than the flavour of leeks is the subtle combination of leek, onion and garlic, so I added 1 diced onion and (as a serious garlic-lover) 6 cloves of garlic. Others including garlic might want somewhat less! ;) The instructions were very clear, always SUCH a plus (particularly on a Friday night!) and, although this took a while to make, making it was very therapeutic - very absorbing and relaxing - at the end of such a typically full-on week at work. I made this some time after dinner, and we each thoughly enjoyed a generous slice for supper. The egg custard was wonderfully creamy and the bacon delicious. YUM! I used freshly ground black pepper instead of cayenne pepper (personal taste preference) and I added some of my favourite herbs: oregano, rosemary, sage and thyme. This is an ideal dish to take to work for morning teas or to friends' places, and I've added it to my rotation of take-to-work lunches. Next time I make this, I'm planning to add some sliced mushrooms. Thank you so much for sharing this yummy recipe, JackieOhNo! We loved it! Made for ZWT 5.
