Ingredients
  • 400g leeks, trimmed and washed
  • 50g butter
  • 750g Asda Sweet Potatoes, peeled and very thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 300ml single cream
Method
  • Finely slice the leeks. Melt a third of the butter in a frying pan, add the leeks and cook until just tender. Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Grease a shallow ovenproof dish.

  • Sprinkle a layer of leeks in the bottom of the dish. Top with a layer of sweet potatoes and sprinkle with a little paprika. Repeat, finishing with a layer of sweet potatoes.

  • Pour over the cream and dot the top with the remaining butter. Loosely cover with foil and bake for one hour, removing the foil for the last 10 minutes for a crispy outer layer.
