  • In a large skillet, combine cream and leeks; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high; reduce to a medium simmer, cover, and cook 5 minutes. Uncover and simmer until leeks are tender, 15 minutes. Transfer leeks and sauce to a shallow 2-quart baking dish.

  • Sprinkle with cheese and bake until golden and bubbling, about 35 minutes. Let gratin rest 10 minutes before serving.

This arrived as a "bring a dish" recently and was the favorite of a crowd post-Thanksgiving. I will make it for my family!

Yum! Substituted soy milk for cream and it was STILL delicious. A great recipe for using the leeks that come in our CSA box.
