Recipe: Leeks In Cheese Sauce

Ingredients - (serves 2)

1 large leek, root and outer leaf removed, thinly sliced
2tbsp butter or margarine
1tbsp flour
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to season
handful grated cheese

Method -

Melt one tbsp butter or margarine in a saucepan, add the sliced leeks and gently cook to soften the leeks.

Once they are soft, remove from the pan and set aside.

In the same saucepan melt the remaining 1tbsp butter and then add the flour, use a whisk to combine the two and cook off the flour until you are left with a paste.  Add the milk and cook until the sauce thickens.  Season with salt and pepper and stir in the grated cheese.

Stir in the cooked leeks and place in a small oven proof dish.  Place in a preheated oven at 200c for around 15 to 20 minutes until the leeks are bubbling and lightly browned on top.
