Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, this tender and flaky Potato Leek Pie is filled with hearty potato goodness, subtle leeks, and scrumptious cheese.
I have a confession to make. This is so embarrassing. I can’t believe I’m telling y’all this.
Okay. Here goes.
I’M A VIRGIN!
A puff pastry virgin that is. Honestly. I’ve never used to stuff, never made the stuff, but LOVE eating the stuff. Seriously. I’ve never made a single thing in my life with puff pastry, that I can recall anyway. Mom may chime and contradict me, but, well, we all know my memory is shite.
That being said, I ruined one of the two sheets that came in the box in a vain attempt to make this. I was in a hurry, it was later than usual, and it just wasn’t cooperating. So, in the garbage it went
I mourn it’s loss. Puff pastry is oh so delicious.
And so it this pie! Holy wow!! The tender potatoes, the subtle leeks, the luscious cheese and cream. It was well worth the wait for this thing to come out of the oven.
I saw that because I severely… SEVERELY…underestimated the time it would take to cook. Even in the convection oven it took about an hour. Not cool for a weeknight meal. But it was worth it. It truly was DELICIOUS! With a capital D!
I imaged us in some Irish pub somewhere nibbling on these and watching the hustle and bustle of the city outside while we sipped on some beer or even some Jamesons. Mmmm.
Actually, we were sitting on the couch drinking Dewars and watching the tube. LOL
A girl can dream. And Ireland is one of the dreams I have to visit one day: Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, maybe Russia depending, Scotland. You know, all those countries that are part of my heritage. Who wouldn’t want to do that; visit the places their ancestors were from?
While I can’t visit there, yet…and I stress YET, I can at least travel there in my kitchen and in my mind. So, take a trip with me and make this delicious Potato Leek Pie!
Where would YOU travel?
