recipe ingredients
5 small leeks (1 lb.)
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon light corn-oil spread
1 cup sliced onions
1/2 pound smoked lean smoked ham, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon each pepper and thyme
3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 quart low-fat (1%) milk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

recipe directions
Preheat oven to 350*F. Coat 13×9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Discard green portions from leeks. Slice white portions of each lengthwise in half; cut crosswise into slices. Rinse leeks well to remove all sand; drain. Heat water and spread in Dutch oven or nonstick skillet over high heat. Add leeks, sliced onions and 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to coat well. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer, stirring until leeks and onions are tender. Stir in ham, 3/4 teaspoon salt, the pepper and thyme. Cook uncovered, stirring over medium-high heat until liquid is evaporated and leeks and onions are golden. Meanwhile, slice potatoes thin. Place flour in large bowl; gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Gradually stir into leek-onion mixture. Bring to boil over high heat, stirring until thickened; boil 1 minute. Spoon 1/2 cup milk mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Top with half the sliced potatoes. Spoon half of remaining sauce over potatoes. Arrange remaining potatoes; cover with remaining sauce. Cover dish with foil and bake 1 1/4 hours. Sprinkle with parsley and bake uncovered 15 minutes more, until potatoes are tender.

    This is a wonderful low point version of the original. My family loves it. What better way to use up that left over Ham. I usually don’t use leeks… not because I don’t like them but rather because I rarely have them on-hand. Tastes great without them.

    GREAT!! I love this recipe as does my husband. I always use the leeks and really enjoy their light flavor.

    This was great! We parboiled the potatoes before baking and that cut the baking time in half. The ham flavored everything really well.
