Cheese and Leek Pie
What more can I possibly say, other than “pie” – what’s not to love?! You have the cheese, the leek, the pastry, chips on the side, roasted carrots, a side of broccoli; absolutely fantastic. Try it as an end of week treat, or as your sunday dinner this weekend.
You will need: (Pie for six)
- 200g Cheddar Cheese, cut into chunks
- 200ml Half Fat Creme Fraiche
- 1 Pack of Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
- 2 Onions, diced
- 1 Large bunch of Spring Onions, finely chopped
- 2 Leeks, washed and sliced
- 1 Egg, beaten
Preheat the oven to 200* and grease a ceramic pie dish.
Mix the cheddar cheese with the creme fraiche. In another bowl, mix the onions and leeks together.
Place a layer of the onion and leek mix into the bottom of the dish, followed by a layer of the cheese and creme fraiche mix. Repeat this process until all you’re left with is a final layer of onions and leeks.
Roll out your pastry and place over the top of the pie. Brush the beaten egg over the top to give it a shiny finish.
Bake in the oven for around 30 mins.
Serve your Cheese and Leek Pie with vegetarian roast potatoes.
