Pancetta or bacon 8 – 10 slices

  1. Preheat the oven to 1800C. Parboil the leeks until tender, drain and slice lengthways. Wrap in the pancetta and arrange in an ovenproof dish.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly add the milk, stirring continuously. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 to 5 minutes, then season to taste. Add the Gruyere and stir through.
  3. Pour the sauce over the leeks and sprinkle the Parmesan over the top. Bake until the sauce starts to bubble and the cheese turns golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve with a crispy baguette.
