This cheesy leek side dish goes well with our Brandied Ham.


  • 8 medium leeks, white and light-green parts only

  • 1 ¾ cups heavy cream

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Halve leeks lengthwise, leaving halves attached at root, and rinse well, shaking off water.

  2. 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.

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