I love this recipe, instead I cooked the leeks hole and the potatoes halved. Then I sliced the leeks and the potatoes arranged in layers. My husband loved it, thanks.

I love leeks and this was very tasty. Needed to save some time, so I cooked the potatoes, sliced, along with the leeks. I wouldn't recommend doing it that way, as they turned a little to soft on me. Loved the white sauce on this and I used Muenster cheese as my choice. :)
