I love this over baked / steamed potato. It is a meal in itself and

soo delish! I leave out the Worcestershire sauce and use a dry

white wine for mine. South African Worcestershire sauce I find is

too overpowering, so I leave it out.Use a good quality, mature

cheese when making this dish, it makes all the difference.


2 leeks, washed, sliced

20ml Olive oil, for frying (I use half butter to oil)

8 slices rye bread, toasted

250g Cheddar cheese, grated

100ml dry white wine

10ml Worcestershire sauce (I omit this)

Salt to taste

3 pinches black pepper, freshly ground

1 egg yolk, extra large

A pinch cayenne


Fry leaks in a little oil until soft, set aside.

Preheat grill and toast bread on one side.

Combine cheese, wine and Worcestershire sauce in a

saucepan and heat slowly, stirring continuously, until cheese has

melted. Season.Allow to cool for 3 -3 minutes, then beat egg yolk

into cheese.Place bread, toasted side down, in a large ovenproof

dish, scatter with leeks and pour over cheese sauce.

Grill for a few minutes until golden.

Sprinkle with cayenne pepper and serve.
