- 320g Pre-rolled puff pastry
- 250g Streaky bacon (cut into 2cm pieces)
- 1 fennel bulb (cut into small pieces)
- 1 leek (cut into small pieces)
- 1 garlic clove (crushed)
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
- 100g asparagus sticks
- A little Cheddar cheese to top
Heat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius
Place the pastry onto a baking tray and fold the sides in, to form an edge. Place baking beads onto the pastry and put into the oven for about 10 minutes to brown.
Meanwhile fry the fennel, leek and garlic in a little olive oil, with the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
Take the pastry out of the oven, remove the baking beads and cover with the veg and bacon. Trim and lay the asparagus sticks across the top and cover with slices of cheese, I use cheddar, but mozzarella also works well.
Place in the oven for 5 – 10 minutes until the cheese has melted and started to brown.
