All our cheshire cheese is suitable for vegetarians

This simple and delicious leek and potato pie, using Mrs. Bourne's Mature Cheshire Cheese goes with just about everything - fantastic with sausages, and vegetarians will love it too.

  • Peel and thinly slice three medium size potatoes.
  • Cut two trimmed leeks into 1/2 inch thick rings.
  • Grate 10 - 12 ozs. of the cheese. Season 3/4 pint of single cream with salt and pepper. Crush a single clove of garlic (optional).
  • Grease a shallow oven-proof dish with butter and garlic.
  • Layer the potatoes, leek and Cheshire cheese and cover with the seasoned cream.
  • Cover with greaseproof paper or foil and bake for about 1 1/4 hours in a moderate oven, until the potatoes are tender.
  • Remove cover ten minutes before finishing to brown top.

This can be cooked very successfully in a microwave oven at full power: Stir at least twice - don't worry about disturbing the layers - nobody will ever know!

Top Tip: If you are lucky enough to possess a food processor, alternate the
potatoes and cheese, using the same slicing disk
