About the Recipe

These rich and creamy leeks topped with a crisp golden and cheesy breadcrumb topping are sure to wow your guests this Christmas


  • 3 medium leeks, sliced

  • 50g butter

  • 50g plain flour

  • 500ml milk

  • 200g cheddar, grated

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 50g breadcrumbs


  1. Add the butter to an oiled pan to unsure it doesn’t burn. Once warm, add your sliced leeks to the pan and cook for 5 minutes on a medium low heat with some salt and pepper to soften.

  2. Next introduce the flour and stir until it thickens. Then slowly add the milk, stirring continuously until combined. Cook for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir in around three quarters of the mature cheddar, the mustard and mix to combine. Taste, and add salt and pepper if needed

  3. Tip everything into a baking dish. Sprinkle the cheese and breadcrumbs over the top and bake for 20 minutes or until golden and crisp on top.
