Potatoes Boulangere With With Leek and Onions

“This dish is wonderful if you place a piece of buttered fresh cod on top 10 minutes before serving. Place back into a hot oven and continue to cook. Serve with a fresh spinach salad for a wonderfully light meal. Alternatively, serve with slices of roast leg of lamb studded with rosemary and garlic.”
