Week 43: Tapas Tartelettes

The Recipe
1 leek, finely chopped
10 slices of bacon, thinly sliced (about 150g)
1dl white wine
2dl cream
1 package puff pastry - about 250g

Heat some oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook the leek and the bacon for a couple of minutes until the leek is soft and the bacon is cooked but not yet crisp.

Add the white wine and let it simmer until mostly reduced. Add the cream and warm it up until just before boiling. Let it cool down.

Cut the puff pastry into pieces suitable for a muffin-thingie (yes, I'm sure that's the official word for it!), shape it as a tartelette and distribute the leek-bacon mix into each.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 10-12 minutes.

The Verdict
Strangely boring! I had not seen that coming at all, but I was very unimpressed. I like the idea though, so may try again with different filling.
