Delicious Cheesy Leek and Potato Bake - easy to make and perfect to enjoy as a side dish or even a main course.
Cheesy Leek Potato Gratin
Who doesn't love a dish with potatoes and cheese? You won't ever see me raising my hand to that question.
Cheesy potato anything is just like the perfect combo. You could literally put it on the menu every single day and I don't think I would ever complain.
Add some leeks to the mix and well, that's heaven right there. Cheesy yummy Leek and Potato Bake - oh my!!
Best Potatoes for Gratin
I like to use Yukon Golds for this recipe, which are a semi waxy yellow flesh potato, they have a delicious almost buttery flavour.
But any potatoes will work well. I do recommend choosing a good quality variety for this.

Cheese Substitutes for Gratin
Feel free to use any cheese you like for the topping for this, so long as it melts well then it will work perfectly.
Don't like parmesan? Use cheddar, mozzarella, Gruyère whatever you fancy, just remember some cheeses are quite mild tasting, so may affect the overall flavour.
