A childhood family meal my Mum would cook was gammon ham (she calls it boiled bacon) with leeks in cheese sauce and lumpy mash (sorry Mum – you know your mash is ALWAYS lumpy!!), so it’s one of those meals that has been passed on and I continue to cook my version of leeks in creamy cheese sauce for my family.
If I cook a gammon ham joint I always crave those leeks in cheese sauce on the side and so I felt I had to share it with you after sharing my slow cooked gammon ham recipe too.
This is the same cheese sauce recipe that I use for my cauliflower cheese, but instead I use sauteed buttered leeks. You can of course use this recipe with no end of vegetables to create a delicious cheesy side dish.
