What you'll need: 
2lb medium potatoes, thinly sliced
2 large leeks, trimmed and chopped finely
7oz ripe Brie or Camembert cheese, sliced
3/4 pt single or double cream
pinch of salt and black pepper
1: 
Pre-heat the oven to 180C or Gas 4. Cook the potatoes in plenty of salted water, boiling for 3 minutes, until slightly softened, then drain.
2: 
Place half of the potatoes in a shallow oven proof dish and spread them out to the edge.Cover with two-thirds of the leeks, the add the remaining potatoes. Tuck the slices of cheese and the remaining leeks in among the top layer of potatoes.
3: 
Season with salt and pepper, and pour the cream over the top of the potatos.
4: 
Bake for 1 hour until tender and golden. Cover with foil if the top starts to overbrown before the the potatoes are tender.
Conclusion: 
There we have a delicious, filling meal, or side dish. This tastes absolutely wonderful!
