Preparation Time

Cook Time





Step 1:

  • Grease a small oven dish with the margarine.
  • Step 2:

  • Par-boil the sliced potatoes in a saucepan for about 5 minutes (so they become only a tiny bit softer than raw).
  • Step 3:

  • Make a layer of the sliced potatoes at the bottom of the oven dish.
  • Step 4:

  • Layer on top some sliced mushrooms and a handful of leeks.
  • Step 5:

  • Add a sprinkle of the herbs and a good pinch of salt & pepper.
  • Step 6:

  • Get a heaped tablespoon of flour (doesn’t need to be sieved) and scatter over the layer. Add another tablespoon if necessary so that you can see a thin layer of flour.
  • Step 7:

  • Put on top 3-4 knobs of margarine, scattered evenly around.
  • Step 8:

  • Repeat this layering, remembering to add the margarine and flour each time, until you reach the top of the dish.
  • Step 9:

  • Finish with a final layer of potato.
  • Step 10:

  • Pour over the top a good glug of milk, probably about 1/2 pint (depending on the size of your dish…this applies to a medium sized oven dish) until you can see it swimming if you tip the dish slightly.
  • Step 11:

  • Add a final sprinkle of herbs to decorate.
  • Step 12:

  • Put in the oven at about 170 degrees (fan oven) for 45 minutes. Add a good layering of cheese over the top after about 30 minutes for a delicious cheesy bake.
  • Step 13:

  • ENJOY!
