Baked and served in individual dishes, this cheesy gratin makes a wonderful accompaniment to roasted meats and poultry. Be sure to use small young leeks.

  • 49


  • 8 young leeks, white and pale green portions
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese
  • 1 Tbs. whole-grain mustard
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup panko
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme


Preheat an oven to 375°F. Butter 4 individual 4-by-6-inch gratin dishes.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the leeks, reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and poach until the leeks are just tender when pierced with a knife, about 8 minutes. Drain the leeks. When they are cool enough to handle, cut them into 1 1/2-inch chunks. Set aside.

In a bowl, stir together the ricotta, Gruyère and mustard. Divide the leeks among the prepared gratin dishes and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Top with the cheese mixture and sprinkle with the panko, parsley and thyme. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Serves 4.
