I cooked this recipe but used uncooked pastry which I baked blind at gas 4 for ten minutes with baking beans and then ten minutes without the baking beans before i added the cheese and potato (I also added in some bacon) and cooked at gas 4 for 30 mins. - 23 Feb 2012


There seems to be some text missing from point 3 and unfortunately it is the vital cooking temperature!! - 22 Feb 2012
