Leek Tart Tartin

The tart tartin is an ideal camp cooking method with the tart being cooked in a skillet upside down, only reveling its true beauty when flipped to serve.

The biggest trick to this recipe is heat control, if it gets too hot the leek filling can burn before the pastry is cooked.

The finished product is equally good served hot with side salads or vegetables, or also works cold as park of a picnic lunch or on a hike.

Ingredients

3 leaks

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup milk

3 eggs

salt and pepper, to taste

1 cups grated (shredded) cheddar cheese

1 sheet of puff pastry or similar

Equipment

10 inch skillet

Recipe Directions

  1. Clean the 3 leeks then slice in equal thicknesses. Melt the butter in the skillet then cook until browned, flip the leek.

  2. Combine the sour cream, milk, eggs, salt, and pepper until well combined and smooth. Pour in the skillet gently to cover the leeks and fill the gaps. Sprinkle with the cheese.

  3. Carefully yest swiftly place the pastry over the leeks tucking the pastry down the sides of the skillet.

  4. The tart now needs to be baked for 15 minutes to set the filling and bake the pastry. There are a few ways this can be done…

    Option 1 Place the whole skillet in a camp oven, cool side of a closed grill, or in a smoker, all set to 350 deg F (180 degrees C).

    Option 2 Place a Dutch oven lid on the top of the skillet then place charcoal on the top to bake the tart. Be careful not to heat too much as it could burn.

  5. When the tart is firm and the pastry is cooked remove from the heat. Place a plate over the skillet then turn upside-down exposing the beautiful hidden tart. Eat hot or cold.
