DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F; grease well a 2-1/2 quart casserole or baking dish (I use cooking spray).
  • Set aside 1/2 cup of the fontina and 1/2 tablespoon each of the parsley and chives.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add leeks, salt and pepper. Saute until soft, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle in flour and cook, stirring, for about 30 seconds.
  • Whisk in half-and-half and bring to a boil. Cook for a minute or two until mixture thickens. Remove form heat and stir in the remaining parsley, chives, and cheese until the cheese is melted.
  • Add potatoes to the sauce and stir until well coated. Transfer to casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour. Remove foil and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake uncovered until cheese is browned and melted and potatoes test for doneness, about 10 minutes. If the potatoes are not tender enough but the cheese is melted, cover with foil again and bake until potatoes are done.
  • Sprinkle with reserved parsley and chives.
