Leek & Potato Bake

A lovely comforting side dish to go with.....whatever you like really! My recipe serves 4 but you can go as big as you need to!

Prep time 15 minutes Cooking time 1 hour


3 large potatoes, peeled & thinly sliced

1 leek, thinly sliced

75g grated cheddar

Pre-heat the oven to 180Fan/200C/Gas6.

Lightly grease an ovenproof dish with butter.

Place a layer of potato in the bottom of the dish, then a layer of leeks & about 1/3 of the cheese then season with salt & pepper. Repeat the layer finishing with potato & the rest of the cheese.

Place the cream, milk, garlic & bay leaf in a saucepan & bring to a boil.
