I have a new favorite appetizer!! Perfect for any holiday or game day. It is quick to prepare and absolutely delicious- pretty too! This recipe was adapted from Food and Wine, contributed by Laura Chenel.
I made it to serve at our second annual Christmas concert where my kids and their friends perform for my friends, my husband, and me (aka their parents and grandparents!). This year we had many pianists, two cellists and a French horn player. The kids all did a great job, of course. It is quite a festive event! It was so warm this year we were able to have a glass of wine by the fire outside afterwards- so lovely!
I’m going to bring this deliciousness to share with my friends at my favorite blog party Fiesta Friday #102! (once again… better late than never!) This week two of my buddies are co-hosting the fun- Elaine @foodbod and Julie @Hostess at Heart. 🙂 Enjoy!!
Yield: Serves 4 to 6 as an appetizer
- All-purpose flour, for dusting
- 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 medium leeks, white and tender green—halved lengthwise, thinly sliced crosswise and rinsed well
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 pound Gruyère cheese, coarsely shredded (2 cups)
- 3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
- Preheat the oven to 475° preferably on convection.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry to a 13-inch square. Fold the corners in and lightly roll the pastry into a rough round. Transfer to a baking sheet; refrigerate.
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the leeks and thyme, season with salt and pepper and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
- Sprinkle half of the cheese over the pastry, leaving a 1-inch border. Spread the leeks over the cheese. Cover with the prosciutto; sprinkle on the remaining cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
- Fold up the tart edge to form a rim and bake for 17 to 20 minutes, until golden and bubbling.
- Blot any excess fat with a paper towel. Cut the tart into wedges and serve.

Simply Divine! I will definitely have to try this out.
Thanks!! You will make it again & again- I guarantee it!! 🙂
I wrote it on my “to make” list. It’s getting rather long, lol!
I’m in a similar situation!! 😉
I have 2 packages of prosciutto looking for a recipe and this one is it!
Do it! 😉
That looks like it’ll be my new favorite appetizer as well! Thanks for sharing, Josette!
Thanks, Patty! I love that it is so easy to throw together too.
That looks good, perfect for me without the prosciutto, and perfect for everyone else with it 🙂 a win:win! Thank you for sharing this with us at Fiesta Friday x
Thanks, Elaine.:) I’m sure it would still be delicious as a vegetarian version- I pretty much love gruyere with anything! (and leeks with anything!) Happy FF! Thanks for hosting too.
I’m so glad you posted this one. I was going to ask for this recipe since Jimmy went on about how delicious it was!
Sorry for the delayed post… You can imagine how flattered I was to hear that Jimmy enjoyed it! Hi to all over there!!
Josette, this tart looks crazy amazing. I just love all of your flavors. Thank you for bringing it to FF!
