Ham and leek pie

So you are going to a dinner party this week-end and you do not know what food to bring? Here is an idea: you can serve at room temperature if needed, and if you serve it warm then it's really tasty.

1 puff pastry
2 medium-small leeks
100 g cooked ham (choose a good quality one, cut into thin slices)
70-80 g mid-ripe cheese
1 egg
1 knob of butter, salt and pepper

Turn on the oven to 175-180º C.
Clean the leeks, cut the white and light-green part in thin slices, and  saute 10 minutes on a low flame with the knob of butter; add a bit of water if needed.
While the leeks merge with the butter in a tasty and perfumed combination, dice the chees and cut the ham in narrow strips. Beat the egg lightly with a fork and mix with the ham, the cheese and the leeks. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Lay the puff pastry on a mold and perforate it with a fork, pour the mix in and cook for 25-30 minutes.
