Warming Winter Garden Gratin

A delicious mix of sprouts and leeks in a cheesy sauce. This warming winter garden gratin will get the whole family eating their greens!

Serves: 4-6

– 2 leeks (about 400 g), cut into thick slices, washed well
– 200g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved if large
– 30g butter
– 30g plain flour
– 300ml milk
– salt and ground pepper
freshly grated nutmeg
– 1 good tsp. mustard
– 125g mixed Gruyére and Cheddar cheeses, grated
– about 30g fresh breadcrumbs (from 1 slice of bread)


1. Add the leeks and sprouts to a large pan of boiling water, bring back to the boil and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Leave to drain.

2. Set the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Melt the butter in a pan over low heat, sprinkle in the flour and stir to make a paste. Cook for a couple of minutes. Gradually pour in the milk, stirring, to make a smooth sauce. Season well with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add the mustard and just over half of the cheese.

3. Put the leeks and sprouts into a flameproof dish. Pour over the sauce, mix in lightly, then sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and then the crumbs. Put the dish on a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes or until browned on top.
