Recipe by Richard Hunt and Neil Strawson. Makes 6
You will need:
- 150g ricotta cheese
- 2 tablespoons (25g) grated leek
- 1 large rasher of cooked bacon
- 1 egg
- vegetable oil to grease muffin tray
- work mat
- mixing bowl
- weighing scales
- 2 tablespoons
- scissors (adult use)
- mini muffin tray
- baking tray
- wooden spoon
- pastry brush
- oven gloves (for adult use only)
Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.
What to do:
Before making, wash your hands and put an apron on. Weigh or measure all of the ingredients. Ask a grown-up to preheat the oven to 180˚C fan/200˚C/gas 6
Wash and dry the leek. Ask a grown-up to help cut the top and tail of the leek and to help grate the leek using a grater. Oil the muffin tray with the pastry brush.
Break the egg into the mixing bowl and add the ricotta cheese. Beat the mixture using a wooden spoon or fork, until smooth.
Add two tablespoons of the grated leek to the beaten egg and cheese mixture. Ask a grown-up to use the scissors to help cut the rasher of bacon into small bits. Add the bacon bits to the other ingredients in the mixing bowl. Give the mixture a stir.
Using the two spoon method, spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin tray. Ask a grown-up to put them in the oven to bake for 30 minutes, or until set and the tops start to brown.
These pies can be eaten either warm or cold.
