Leeks, butter, cream and cheese combine to make a deliciously savoury and rich side dish. This can be a simple or as complex as you like - add your own flavours to spice it up!


Serves: 4 

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 knob butter (approx 2 tablespoons)
  • 4 leeks, trimmed, washed, halved and sliced
  • 1 (200ml) tub cream
  • 75g cheddar cheese, grated
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a large frying pan, heat the oil and butter together over medium heat. Add the leeks and sauté for at least five minutes, so that they start to soften. Add the cream and cheese, stirring thoroughly.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and cook gently for another 10 minutes until the mixture is thick and all of the cheese is melted.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to cool slightly for a couple of minutes before serving.


This is perfect as-is, but if you want to vary this recipe, add different cheese, diced bacon, garlic, Worcestershire sauce or diced new potatoes.
