  • 1 leek

  • 500g potatoes (leftovers) chopped hopped into 3cm chunks

  • 75g butter

  • 1 small onion chopped

  • 1 small goat's cheese round


  1. Gently saute the onions and leeks in butter in a frying pan until the onion is transparent, and the leek has softened.
  2. Add potatoes and mix thoroughly, until potatoes are golden and heated through.
  3. Transfer to an ovenproof dish.
  4. Roughly chop up the goat's cheese and insert lumps of cheese randomly throughout the dish.
  5. Place in an oven or under the grill until the goat's cheese has melted through the potato, and the potato has crisped slightly.

Handy Hint

You could also fry chopped ham or bacon at the onion/leek sauteeing stage to make it more a substantial meal, and add grated chese and black pepper before transferring to oven/grill. Serve with slight hysteria and great friends. (Optional: you can even eat it on your knee with a spoon on your own in front of the telly if you like, but mine was better with fabulous company).

    Fab with the addition of bacon pieces. Also good with a medley of cheeses, but you need the goaty kick.

    There were 4 small but perfectly formed home-grown leeks in the recipe, but one stonking large one would probably yield the same amount of chopped leek. Although I could imagine shovelling this one in alone in front of the telly, it is immeasurably better with shrieks and good friends.

    Fantastic versatile recipe - eat with bacon sausages and egg for a lardy brekkie or just as fab for a simple supper (I reckon would be great with roast gammon). Fab company and large volumes of hysteria will greatly enhance the culinary experience [grin]

    Cobb owners, make this the breakfast that will turn your camping neighbours green with envy. Do spuds in the moat wrapped in foil the night before and next day do all the rest of the stuff in the wok attachment or frying pan. To avoid hysteria and potentially setting yourself on fire [safety first] always have a fire bucket to hand before you start.

    This recipe is a fantastic start to the day after the night before. It is delicious and would also be great for a kitchen supper with friends and family. Hysteria optional but does greatly enhance the eating and the aim (mouth not trousers).

    This recipe was brought to you by a collective of MN'ers, who grew the vegetables, bought the goat's cheese, and inspired the name. You know who you are.....
