One of the most frequent comments I hear in my cookery classes is how difficult pastry is to make. It does take a little practice to get it right but can be so rewarding when it turns out well.
But, at this busy time of the year, with lots of family to cook for and a fridge full of food, making pastry may not be on the top of your priority list. But that’s fine. What I wanted to share with you today is a recipe I developed for Wayfair. It’s a ham, Stilton and cranberry tart that can just as happily be made with shop bought shortcrust pastry.
The recipe I chose to make is one that uses up lots of your Christmas leftovers. The ham, Stilton and cranberries that form such an important part of Christmas day sometimes seem a little less appealing once they have been sitting in the fridge for a day or two. But this tart is a really good way of putting together a collection of ingredients and turning them into something that would make a tasty lunch or simple supper for you, your family and any friends that might be joining you over the Christmas break.
The recipe is simply a guideline, so feel free to swap the ham for turkey and the kale for broccoli or roasted sprouts. Any cheese would work here if you aren’t a big Stilton fan and remember that you can make this tart in next to no time if you keep a packet of ready rolled shortcrust pastry in the fridge.
If you like the sound of this lovely leftover tart then you can find the recipe for it HERE.
