Bacon-Leek Tart


Partially bake your favorite tart crust recipe (or even a refrigerated pie crust) in a tart pan with removable bottom.


1 tablespoon butter
2 cups chopped leeks (white and pale green parts only)
3 T chopped fresh parsley
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 large eggs
2/3 cup whipping cream
1/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cook bacon in skillet until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.
Drain bacon fat except for 1 T. Add 1 T. butter and leeks and sauté until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Spoon leeks into crust. Sprinkle bacon over leeks. Beat eggs, cream, milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a small bowl to blend; pour into crust.
Bake pie until filling is set in center, about 25 minutes. Remove pan sides. Transfer pie to platter and serve.
