Looks and reads like a lot of awesomeness! Another great recipe to try. Thank you!
Thanks Linda, this is a wonderful recipe that I know you will enjoy.
I always love the combo of leek and potato. This is a simple yet very tasty and comforting side.
Me too! My grandmother used to make a delicious potato and leek soup. It is a fond childhood memory for me, so naturally I gravitate towards this combination.
Lots of potatoes on that list! I’ve started embracing potatoes mor in my old age. I still have to watch carbs, but I finally had the realization that I really love potatoes. I’ll just cook one, and have it warm with butter and a slice of good cheese. But, I love your dish with the leeks. Divine!
Yes, there is something magical about the humble potato that we just can’t walk away from. Potato, butter and cheese is always a winner combination for me as well.
