  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C, and put a baking sheet inside. Cook the potatoes to pack instructions.
  2. On another baking sheet, layer the filo sheets, spraying each with cooking spray before topping with the next. As you add each sheet, turn it 90° so you get a rough square.
  3. Scatter 1 heaped tbsp breadcrumbs in a 20cm circle in the middle of the pastry. Mash 150g goat’s cheese with the lemon zest and juice, remaining breadcrumbs, garlic, eggs and parsley; season.
  4. Thickly slice the potatoes, reserving the butter. Spread half the cheese mixture over the breadcrumbs, then layer with the potatoes and remaining cheese mixture on top. Dot with the remaining goat’s cheese. Scrunch the filo up around the filling; drizzle with the reserved potato butter. Slide the baking sheet onto the preheated sheet; bake for 20-25 mins until the filling is set. Scatter with parsley to serve.

Get ahead: You can bake the tart 1 hr ahead and serve it at room temperature.
