Ingredients

  • 140g diced pancetta
  • 2 leeks, finely sliced
  • 8 British Lion eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 50g Gruyère cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 15 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Salt and pepper

Method

  1. Pre heat the oven to 190C/170C fan/ gas mark 5.
  2. Fry the pancetta in a pan until crispy then use a slotted spoon to remove from the pan, leaving any fat in the pan.
  3. Fry the leeks for 3 minutes until soft then remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.
  4. Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  5. Mix together the egg yolks, mustard, parsley, half the cheese and pancetta, then season with salt and black pepper. Finally, fold in the egg whites.
  6. Heat a 25cm frying pan on a high heat, it must be able to go in the oven.
