Cheese pie with ham and leek

Leak-Ham-Cake-13

This is a very simple and delicious pie to make as main course for 4 people or just as a side dish in a party, since you can make in advanced and just warm up when you are going to eat. Also for the filling you can just add whatever you can find at home, other vegetables like onions, paprikas or aubergines and the ham you can leave out or even replace for bacon or chicken, this last one is best if you first bake in olive oil with some salt and pepper.  (more…)
