  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
  2. Roll out the pastry and use to line a 23cm loose-based, deep-sided fluted flan tin. Prick the base with a fork then line the tart with nonstick baking paper and baking beans and bake blind for 12 minutes. Remove the paper and beans and cook for a further 5 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to Gas Mark 4, 180°C, fan 160°C.
  3. Meanwhile make the filling. Melt the butter in a large pan and when foaming add the shredded sprouts, and cover and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes. Beat together the eggs, cream, milk, mustard, Wendsleydale and some seasoning. Spoon the cooked sprouts into the base of the pastry case, then pour over the egg mixture and bake for 25 minutes.
  4. To make the topping, combine all the ingredients. Remove the tart from the oven and sprinkle the topping evenly over. Return to the oven and bake for a further 15 minutes until golden brown. Serve cut into wedges and with a simple salad if desired.
