  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 red-skinned potatoes (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 5 slices pancetta (about 3 oz/90 g)
  • 5 slices bacon (about 3 oz/90 g)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced leek (white and light green parts only)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme (or 2 tsp/10 mL dried)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cups 10% cream
  • 1/3 cup milk

Method

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until almost tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly; cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Place in large bowl.

Coarsely chop pancetta. In nonstick skillet, cook pancetta over medium heat until just beginning to crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towel.

Add leek, thyme, salt and pepper to pan; cook over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add to potatoes along with goat cheese and all but 2 tbsp (25 mL) each of the pancetta and parsley; toss to combine. Spread in greased 9-inch (23 cm) quiche dish or pie plate.

In bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and milk; pour over potato mixture. Scatter remaining pancetta and parsley over top. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Bake in bottom third of 375°F (190°C) oven until puffed and just set in centre, about 35 minutes.
