Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Lightly grease a 20cm-diameter fluted loose-bottomed tart pan and line with puff pasty, tucking corners in towards centre of pan. Prick base with a fork and bake for 10 minutes or until golden.

  • Meanwhile, heat half the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add ham and leek and cook for 5 minutes or until leek is soft and ham starts to colour. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. In a bowl, whisk together eggs and chives, season to taste, add ham mixture and stir to combine. Pour into prepared tin, scatter with Gruyère and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden and cooked through. If crust browns too quickly, cover with foil.
