Savoury Leek Pie

Another recipe from the CWA cookbook received at Christmas - It's quite tasty, but I see that I could add a few other ingredients - I think it would also be more an Autumn or Winter dish, rather than served on a cool Summer's day.

600ml cream
200g diced bacon
1 large onion (diced)
1 x pkt Chicken Supreme Soup mix
1/2 sweet potato (sliced)
2-3 leeks (sliced)

PreHeat Oven to 160c
Mix the cream, bacon, onion, soup mix together.
Layer the sweet potato and leeks in a casserole dish - pour the cream/soup mix over the top and stir to ensure all is covered.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes, or until sweet potato is cooked

I omitted the onion, and as I didn't have any Supreme Soup Mix, but substituted a slow cooker pre-mix - Potato & Bacon Slow Cooker mix.  I added one chopped and browned chicken fillet.

The verdict:   Boy 1 - Mmmm- s'ok    Boy 2 - Tasty.   Hubby - You could sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of it.  - I might try that next time!
