2 tb Butter
4 c Leeks, chopped (=5)
2 tb Dijon mustard
5 sl Bacon, cooked and crumbled

root end. Wash under running water and shake to remove excess water.

190C oven for 10 minutes. Remove pie weights and foil; Bake for 15
minutes longer or just until lightly golden. Let cool.
Meanwhile, in large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat; cook
leeks, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes or until softened.
Brush cooled pastry shell with mustard; spread leeks over top.

pepper and salt; pour over bacon. Bake in 350F 180C oven for 30-35
minutes or until golden.
