    Bergy's Note:

    This recipe travels well! Bake it first reheat in a moderate oven. It can be stored in the fridge for up to two days. I like to put "Baker's helper " sheet (layered aluminum sheet to prevent burning) under the pie plate. When you put in the layers of potatoes take your time and do it artistically so the top layer looks attractive with the swirl of potatoes. This is very attractive and I love the combination of Leeks with the two types of potatoes

      So good as is, that I did not change the recipe when I made it for the second time. I use the new Renolds Release foil to line the pie pan. Press the layers down a bit as you go. Use a mandolin on medium for the slice thickness. Be sure to cover while baking.

      I made this for brunch and really liked how it was similar to a gratin, but not creamy, (and so, not so fattening as a gratin) I too added a bit of liquid and, as I didn't have any thyme, used sage and fresh rosemary instead. This will be a regular for me.

      The whole family loved this. I did add the tablespoon of chicken stock like Latchy suggested. I will make this again.
