INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prepare your ingredients as listed above
  2. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. In a large skillet set on medium heat, melt your butter.
  4. Add onions and shallots to your skillet. Season with Salt and Pepper. Fry until translucent
  5. Throw in your leeks and fry until the water content has evaporated
  6. In a small bowl, mix together minced garlic and cream & milk
  7. In a 9x12 deep casserole dish, brush the dish with olive oil and it's now time to layer your ingredients: Begin lining the dish with a layer of potatoes. Then add a thin layer of leeks, onions and shallots.
    Next add a layer of grated Parmigiana Cheese, Cheddar/Mozzerella Cheese.
    Sprinkle a light layer of flour, season it with some salt. Sprinkle some fresh thyme leaves. Lastly, pour 1/3 cup of the cream/milk/garlic mixture. Keep repeating the layers until all your ingredients are used. Important: the cream & milk should really only cover up to 3/4 of your dish. Anymore than that and your potatoes will be swimming in liquid - not good.
  8. Bake uncovered for 60 minutes
  9. Slice into squares and enjoy!
