Leek, Potato & Caerphilly Bake  Recipe

Prep and cooking time: 90 minutes
Serves 2 as a side dish

2 Medium Potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

25g/1oz Butter

75g/3oz Welsh Caerphilly Cheese, grated

1 Large Leek, well washed and thinly sliced (including the green part)

300ml/10fl.oz. Milk

Salt and Black Pepper

A little extra grated Caerphilly Cheese to finish the dish


1. Preheat the oven to 190C, 375F, Gas mark 5 and well butter a relatively deep ovenproof dish.


2.  Place a single layer of potatoes in the bottom of the buttered dish, sprinkle over a little of the cheese, top with a single layer of leeks and season well with salt and black pepper.


3. Continue with these layers until all the ingredients are used up, ending with a layer of potatoes - remembering to reserve 1-2 tablespoons of the grated cheese for later use.


4.  Dot the top with butter, pour over the milk then cover with a double layer of aluminium foil and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes.


5. Remove the foil, test for doneness using a sharp knife. The potatoes should be soft however depending on how thickly you sliced the potatoes, it may need a further 15-20 minutes covered baking.


6. Once the potatoes are cooked, sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the potatoes and return to the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese has melted and is golden brown. Serve immediately.


Excellent with Welsh Lamb Chops.
