8 slices bacon, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 leeks (white and light green parts), cut into 2 1/2-inch strips
1 17.3-ounce package frozen puff-pastry sheets, thawed
4 ounces fontina or Swiss cheese, shredded


Heat oven to 375° F.

Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Discard all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings and return to medium heat. Add the leeks and cook for 3 minutes.

Unfold the puff pastry and place on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with the cheese and scatter the leeks and bacon over the tops.

Bake until the pastry is golden brown and crisp, about 25 minutes.
