Parmesan Cheese Pastry

100 g flour
100 g butter, chilled
100 g Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Bacon and Potatoes

3 potatoes
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
12 rashers streaky bacon
30 g Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Cream Filling

1 C (250 ml) mascarpone cheese
½ C (125 ml) fresh cream
2 eggs
freshly milled black pepper and coarse sea salt

Parmesan Cheese Pastry

Prepare a 30 x 12 cm tart tin.

Place all of the ingredients for the pastry into a food processor and pulse until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Form the crumbs into a ball and then press into the tart pan. Place the tart shell in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Bacon & Potatoes

Peel and cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until cooked through. Drain the water and allow the potatoes to cool slightly. Cut the potatoes into wedges and wrap a slice of bacon around each wedge.

Sprinkle the base of the prepared tart shell with the grated Parmesan and top with the bacon-wrapped wedges.

Cream Filling

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Mix all of the ingredients for the cream filling together and pour into the tart tin to fill around the potato wedges. Bake for 35–40 minutes until the cream mixture has set.

Serve warm slices of tart with a crisp rocket salad on the side.
