Gruyere and leek pie

    1 hour

    An original French recipe my mum used to bake. Great to eat with a salad during summer or even winter. Absolutely delicious!!! Can be prepared the day before and served as a starter or main dish. Can substitute Emmental for Gruyere cheese.

    This was really simple to make and tasted fantastic. I made it a day in advance and reheated it in the oven for about 20 minutes at 190oC and came it out perfect.  -  14 Sep 2011
