Ingredients:

Ingredients Amount
Potatoes 500 grams
Butter 100 grams
Cream 125 ml
Leeks 2
Flour 50 grams
Water 100 ml
Milk 500 ml
Salt To taste
Cheese 100 grams
Pepper To taste
Eggs 4
Vegetable oil 1 teaspoon

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Potatoes: Peel and wash 500 grams of potatoes. Cut them into medium-sized cubes.
  2. Cook the Potatoes: Place the cubed potatoes in a saucepan filled with water. Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain the water and add 125 ml of cream and 50 grams of butter to the potatoes. Mash them until smooth.
  3. Prepare the Leeks: Clean and slice 2 leeks into rings. Cook them in a separate saucepan with water for about 10 minutes until tender. Set them aside in a bowl.
  4. Cook the Eggs: Boil 4 eggs in a pot of salted water for 10 minutes. Once cooked, rinse them with cold water and allow them to cool before peeling.
  5. Assemble the Gratin: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Spread a layer of mashed potatoes in a baking dish. Top with the cooked leeks and sprinkle grated cheese on top. Arrange sliced boiled eggs on top of the cheese.
  6. Season and Bake: Season the gratin with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the remaining butter over the top. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges are golden brown.
  7. Serve: Once baked, remove the gratin from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired and serve hot.
