This recipe is from a Canadian show called Best Recipes Ever.I have never tried leeks but thought this was a good way to try them.I'm very glad I did.Leeks have a similar taste as a green onion.I halved the recipe to make it into 2 servings. For the buttermilk,I used milk and about 1 tbsp of lemon juice mixed together. Cooking time is boiling time for the potatoes.
- 6 yukon gold potatoes
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 pinch dried thyme
- 1 1⁄3 cups buttermilk
- Scrub potatoes.
- Cut into 2 inch cubes.
- In large saucepan of boiling salted water,cover and cook potatoes until tender,about 15 minutes.
- Drain and return to pot.
- Meanwhile,in a small skillet,melt 1 tbsp butter over medium heat;fry leeks.
- Add a pinch of salt,pepper and thyme to leeks.
- Fry until tender,about 5 minutes.
- Add buttermilk,remaining butter,salt & pepper to potatoes;smash with potato masher until smooth with a few large pieces remaining.
- Stir in leeks mixture.
