Method

In a medium fry pan over a medium heat, cook the bacon until browned and crispy. Remove from pan to a plate lined with a paper towel. Melt Devondale Our Dairy Soft One Butter over a medium heat and cook the leeks, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly.

While the leeks cool, combine the Devondale Full Cream Milk and Devondale Our Thickened Fresh Cream, Devondale Smooth Tasty All-Rounder Cheese, eggs, egg yolks, thyme, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Add the cooled leeks and the bacon and stir to combine.

Cut rounds of the puff pastry and place into pre greased mini muffin trays.  Pour mixture into the centre of each puff pastry round.  Bake in a moderate oven for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
