Prep time

Cook time



  • 100g pancetta
  • 2 sheets frozen shortcrust pastry, defrosted
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 leek, pale green end only, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely diced
  • 250g frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
  • 100g feta
  • 4 eggs
  • 15mL cream
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 10 tomatoes, preferably on truss


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC and line a large baking tray, then place a cake rack over the top of it.
  • Lay out your pancetta in rows on the rack and bake for 10 mins until crispy. Remove and let cool, then crumble into a bowl.
  • Grease a pie dish and line it with the shortcrust pastry, cutting and joining to cover the entire dish.
  • Line the pastry with baking paper and fill with pie weights, rice or beans and blind bake for 10 mins. Then remove the weights and the liner.
  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a frying pan and gently soften the leek and garlic until fragrant.
  • Place the spinach into a strainer and squeeze to remove any extra moisture.
  • Spread the leek and garlic over the base of the dish, then top with alternating scatterings of the spinach and pancetta, along with crumbled feta.
  • Beat the eggs with the cream and season to taste.
  • Pour the egg mix over the slice filling, allowing it to seep between the layers and then top with the truss of tomatoes.
  • Bake for 35 mins.
  • Note: This recipe can be easily made gluten-free by using gluten-free pastry.
