What I Made Today...

Potatoes Au Gratin

My Favorite.

3 yukon gold potatoes
1 cup of cream
1/2 cup 1/2 and 1/2
2 cups gruyere cheese
1 leak
lot's of kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Cut the leaks into long strips. Peel the potatoes, and set until all are peeled. Use a mandolin or slice really really thin. Grease a deep pan and begin by putting a little cream on the bottom. Next, layer the potatoes in a circle or spiral shape. Sprinkle salt, cheese, leak and a little half and half and cream. Continue this pattern until you get to the top. When you reach the top, add a lot of cheese. Cook at 325 for 45 minutes to an hour. If the top begins to get too brown you can cover it with foil. Enjoy!
