Cheese and Potato Layer Bake

From What’s Cooking Vegetarian, Jenny Stacey, Parragon, 2000.

Anything with potatoes and cheese as ingredients will tempt me so when flipping through the pages of What’s Cooking Vegetarian I came across this old favourite I just had to make it. It’s a dish that comes in many variations and guises so it’s worthwhile trying out the variations when I come across them in different books. This particular variation contained leek.

The potatoes were first boiled and then sliced. A layer of them was arranged on the bottom of a casserole dish. On top of them went some sliced leek, some chopped garlic, grated cheddar and mozzarella. A sprinkling of chopped parsley was also added. These layers were continued until all of the ingredients were used, ending with a cheese layer.

Milk and cream were mixed (this was a rather rich variation) and seasonings added.  This was then poured over the layers in the casserole and baked for a little over an hour.

Tasty and filling with the satisfying feeling of indulging more than you should.
