  • Flour an 26cm loose bottom tart tin and place onto a baking tray for stability when putting into the oven.
  • Heat oven to 160 degrees centigrade. Roll out short crust pasty to fit bottom and sides of tart tin and place in tin.
  • Whisk together eggs and milk and season with salt and pepper. Slice gorgonzola cheese.
  • Layer base of tart with pears and slices of cheese, fanning them around the base to form a nice circle pattern.
  • Gently pour the egg & milk mixture over the pears and cheese.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the mixture puffs up like a souffle (it will shrink down again when cooled) and is golden brown.
  • Test the texture with you fingers to see that the egg is set before removing from the oven. Serve warm with salad.
