Ingredients

  • 4 lbs. potatoes, mashed
  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 4 medium leek
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
    Ad
  • 3 cups grated cheddar
  • salt and pepper

Directions

Slice Leek into thin rings and cook in water with salt until tender. Drain the leeks well and set aside.

In a pan melt the butter, then stir in flour. Once it's blended well, stir in the milk a little at a time, making a white sauce. Remove from heat and stir in 2 cups of cheddar. You could add spices of your choice at this point, such as nutmeg. Add the cooked leeks to the sauce and stir well.

Take 1/2 of the mashed potatoes and make a layer in a 9X13 inch pan. Next layer in the leek, then the rest of the potatoes. Cover with last cup of cheese, and sprinkle with bacon.

Bake in 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
