Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
2 lbs potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
2 lg leeks, trimmed and sliced into 1/2" pieces
7 oz Brie or Camembert, sliced
2 c light cream
Preheat oven to 350.
Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 3 minutes or until slightly tender. Add the leeks during the last minute. Drain and turn the vegetables into a buttered ovenproof baking dish.
