Bacon and Leek Gratin

Posted By Kerri


We had four leeks to use up and, having discussed various things to do with them, decided on a sort-of gratin. It contained leeks, lardons, potatoes, cheese, creme fraiche, milk, nutmeg and salt and pepper.

It was really good, we had it with winter greens and I think we’ll have it again very soon.
