Leek and Potato Bake

Leek and Potato Bake


The classic combination of leek and potato works well in this dish, but we added some other tasty goodies for extra flavour.


Ingredients
6 leeks (roots and top leaves removed), sliced
6 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced ½cm thick
1 packet (250g) bacon, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup thyme leaves
1 cup cream
Leek and potato bake
1 cup strong cheese like mature cheddar, grated
Salt and pepper


Parboil the potatoes in boiling salted water. Sauté the leeks and bacon for a few minutes until the bacon is cooked. Add the thyme, and season well. Add the potatoes to a casserole dish, cover them with the leeks and bacon, pour over the cream and top with cheese. Bake at 180°C for 30 minutes. Serves 4.
