Wild Leek Recipe

Here is a unique recipe using wild leeks! Here’s a recipe for a savory Wild Leek and Bacon Tart that combines the subtle, garlicky flavor of wild leeks with the rich, smoky flavor of bacon: They are getting harder to find these days, and if you do find them take only what you need, leaving the rest, so they will grow next year.


  • 1 pie crust (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 pound wild leeks, cleaned and chopped
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 °F (190 °C).
  2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the chopped wild leeks to the same skillet and cook for 5–7 minutes until they are wilted and tender.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, eggs, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
  5. Roll out the pie crust and place it in a 9-inch tart pan. Trim the edges of the crust and prick the bottom with a fork.
  6. Scatter the cooked bacon and wild leeks on the bottom of the tart crust.
  7. Pour the egg and cream mixture over the bacon and leeks.
  8. Bake for 35–40 minutes, until the filling is set, and the top is golden brown.
  9. Allow the tart to cool for a few minutes before serving.

This tart is a delicious and unique way to use wild leeks, and the combination of flavors is sure to impress! Enjoy!
