Notes about this recipe

  • LeslieB22 on September 21, 2011

    Though it's called "tart," many might consider this a quiche. Either way, it is a delicious recipe, but be warned: exercise your own judgement and good common sense considering how many leeks will fit into a tart pan along with a goodly amount of eggs and cream. If I recall correctly, Hopkinson calls for about 8 leeks, but his leeks must be the size of pencils because the leeks I used (about 1 inch wide and 2 feet long) certainly did NOT fit in the pan and I had to make a number of crustless ramekin-sized extra tarts.
