Leek Gratin
 

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Fransisco.

"This is really delicious".

Ingredients

6 leeks, trimmed, split lengthwise, and well rinsed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Tblsp. unsalted butter cut into pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream
6 Tblsp. grated Gruyere cheese

Method

Preheat oven to 350º. Arrange the leeks cut side up in a single layer in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, dot with butter, and gently pour the cream over the top. Sprinkle with the cheese, cover with a lid or foil and bake for 35 minutes. Carefully uncover and bake 5 - 10 minutes more until the top is golden brown and the leeks are tender.

Tip:
Whenever you are baking with crem, do not let the oven temperature exceed 400º or the cream will separate, leaving curds and an oil residue.
