creamy potatoes with Gruyere cheese and leeks
1 pound leeks , light green and white parts only - sliced thin
2 Tbsp butter
3 pounds white potatoes, peeled and grated
3 cups milk
9 oz package of cream cheese
grated nutmeg - about 1-2 tsp
2 cups of Gruyere cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
In the blender, cream together the eggs, milk and cream cheese.
In a skillet, heat the butter, and saute the leeks until limp and translucent.
Transfer the mixture from the blender to a large bowl, and fold in the grated potatoes, and add the leeks and the nutmeg. Then add the bulk of the grated Gruyere cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Put this mixture into a buttered baking dish and sprinkle the rest of the Gruyere on top, and bake at 350 degrees until the top bubbles and the cheese melts. You may want to put in under the broiler for 1-2 minutes to brown the top a bit.
