Blue cheese, spinach and bacon tart

So I have mentioned before that I had to change my cooking habits slightly when I was no longer cooking for just myself. Well sometimes D really surprises me when I need it most (ie. when there is nothing else in the cupboard). So while this recipe was born out of throwing some ingredients onto ready rolled out puff pastry it has become one of our favourite things to eat midweek. (The leftovers have caused D’s boss to eye up his lunch more than once).

DSC_0544To make the tart you will need:

1 pack ready rolled pastry or 1 pack (roll it out to fill your baking tray)

3-4 rashers bacon  (cut into small pieces)

1 large handful green beans (or any other green vegetable)

3 handfuls spinach

3 eggs

Approx 40g blue cheese (if you dislike blue cheese any strong cheese flavour is fine)

10g melted butter

3 eggs (beaten)

15g melted butter

Salt and pepper


Preheat your oven to 180°C. Place your sheet of pastry on a baking tray, prick holes in the pastry sheet with a fork and brush the pastry with your melted butter.

Pour your beaten egg over this then season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes until the pastry is puffed up and golden (everything else should have cooked in this time).


I like to serve this with tomato based salad. This would also make excellent picnic food.
