Method

To make the pastry:

  1. Rub the flour and butter together to form breadcrumbs
  2. Add the salt and combine
  3. Add the water a tablespoon at a time and mix with hands to bring together to form the dough ball
  4. Wrap the pastry dough in film wrap and rest in a fridge for a minimum of 25 minutes (whilst you make the filling)

To make the filling:

  1. Melt the butter over a medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and the leeks and allow to soften - about 8-10 mins
  3. In a separate saucepan of cold water put your sliced potato. Place on a medium/high heat and bring to the boil. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Once cooked drain and put to one side.
  4. Add the herbs and cooked potato to the onion and leeks. Stir and cook for a further 2 mins over a medium heat.
  5. Remove the potato and leek mix from the heat and allow to cool.
  6. Once cool add the cheese and stir.
