Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups (10 oz.) smoked Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 medium sized leeks
  • 8 slices cooked ham
  • 2 cups white sauce*

  3. Place the leeks into a pan of boiling, salted water and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, remove and place into cold water.
  4. When the leeks are cold, dry on kitchen paper, wrap each piece of leek in two slices of ham and place into a baking dish.
  5. Add half the smoked Cheddar to the white sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the leeks.
  6. Sprinkle the remainder of the cheese on top of the sauce and bake until golden, and 15 to 25 minutes.
