Potato-Leek Gratin

Lisa Tucker


This recipe is from the 'Food Matters Cookbook' by Mark Bittman. My family loves a good au gratin potato recipe and I made this to see if I could get a healthier version into our dinner rotation! It was a huge hit and is now one of our favorites. This is a super easy dish to prepare as well. Enjoy!
