It’s prime leek season in the Netherlands – which means that it’s time for a delicious leek and potato bake made with authentic Dutch cheese!
First preheat your oven to 200C. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes, boil them for approx. 15 minutes, drain, and then finely mash using a potato masher. Next add in the milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper, and stir until nice and smooth. Now slice the leek into rings, rinse thoroughly in cold water and boil for a few minutes, or until al dente. Once ready, stir the leeks into the mash and spoon the mixture into a baking dish. Finally, top with grated Dutch cheese and place into the oven for approx. 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
