Bacon and Leek Tartlets

Bacon and Leek Tartlets
Yield: 10 Prep 30 mins Total Time 45 mins

Ingredients

  • 5 - 6 slices of bacon, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cleaned and thinly-sliced leeks
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 sheet puff pastry

Make It

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium skillet set over medium heat, fry the bacon until the fat is rendered and the meat is just beginning to crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain; reserve.

2. Discard all but about 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat from the pan. Add the olive oil and place over medium heat. When the combined fats are hot, add the leeks and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until the leeks are very soft and beginning to meld together, about 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, roll out the puff pastry according to package directions and cut into 10 equal squares. When the leeks are done, spoon a bit onto each square and top with a sprinkling of the bacon. Transfer the tartlets to the oven and bake as directed on the pastry package until golden brown.
