Baked leek & potato parcels
Be the first to rate this recipe
- 750g Charlotte potatoes
- 1 large leek, finely shredded
- 2 bay leaves
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 30g butter
Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Take 4 lengths of 38 x 60cm greaseproof paper. Lie one piece horizontally on a large baking tray and top with the other piece vertically to form a cross shape.
Parboil the potatoes for 10-12 minutes. Drain well, cool slightly and cut in half. In a large mixing bowl, toss the potatoes with the leeks, bay leaves, oil and butter. Season with rock salt and black pepper.
Pile half the potatoes in the centre of the greaseproof paper and scrunch the edges to form a moneybag shape. Tie with string. Repeat with the remaining potatoes to make a second parcel – this is much easier with a helper!
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the vegetables are steaming hot. Remove from the oven and bring straight to the table. Serve from the untied bags – the kids will love them!
