Ingredients

  • 6 medium leeks (white and pale green portion only)
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated pecorino Romano cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. Cut leeks lengthwise in half; cut halves crosswise into 3-in. pieces. Place cream, salt, pepper and leeks in an ovenproof large skillet; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Uncover; simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese.
Bake, uncovered, until golden and leeks are tender, 15-20 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Yield: 8 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Leeks are part of the onion family, although their flavor is much more subtle.
  • To prepare leeks, cut off the roots and trim the tough leaf ends. Slit the leek from end to end and wash thoroughly under cold water to remove dirt trapped between the layers of leaves.
