The leeks were amazing this year. I have never grown such large and beautiful leeks. So what to do with all these leeks? I've been scouring the internet for recipes. The first one we tried was a Leek gratin.
This was super easy. Just clean then slice the leek (dark green leaf parts removed) lengthwise leaving the root end attached and not cut. Put in an oven proof pan with 1.5-2 cups of cream (I used heavy cream). Bring to a boil then simmer 5 minutes, then put a lid on the pan and continue simmering for 15 min or until leeks are soft. Then sprinkle with 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and bake in a 375 degree oven for 35 min, or until golden brown.
What could be easier than three ingredients and one pan?
