Recipe by Rita Machado
"This is a very tasty dish and a different way of making a shepherd's pie. Ham, leeks, and potatoes baked in a creamy mashed potato crust."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was very very good!.
I did add some fresh thyme to the leek mixture and I'll add to the reviewer who says that this makes a lot of food.
But that's good!, my husband was delighted that thre were leftovers the next day and said that cold was even better.
I think this would be very good with the leek mixture mixed with cheddar cheese sauce, too.
Mmm, a wonderful winter sunday meal.
It is somewhat lacking in flavor, but definitely a good start.
I needed something for a pot luck and this turned out to be perfect! Big oops, though -- I realised at the last minute that I was out of potatoes, so I used whole wheat macaroni as the base and turned it into a "gourmet" mac-n-cheese. But it is the combination of flavours that really makes it -- the leeks, ham, nutmeg and pepper are delicious together. I'm sure it will be even better with the creamy mashed potato base, but even the way I made it, it was gobbled up instantly!
Fabulous recipe! Be sure to make enough mashed potatoes and REALLY be sure to leave enough for the top. The only change I made was to add garlic and white wine to the sauteeing leeks and onion. Also, next time I won't make my potatoes with heavy cream. That's a lot of extra calories just for mashed potatoes that will be covered in other yummy goodness.
Delish! I made the potatoes much less creamy (used a little butter and some 1% milk instead of cream) and kept the skins on because I'm a freak who loves fiber, but I can see how this would be good with just the flesh of the 'taters. Too, I found the serving size a bit off; I halved the recipe and still got way more than what I would consider 6 servings. (Still working through the leftovers, to be honest!)
I followed the recipe as is and we both decided that we would make it again. The top puffed up a little and was the best part! I also loved the nutmeg in the mashed potatoes and will add it everytime I make them now.
Pretty good. Listen to the reviewers when they say make extra mash. If I try this again, I may just put the mash on the top and double the filling. I felt I was eating a plate full of mash potatoes instead of shepards pie. Flavor was great and it was my first time cooking with leeks. So if you're a leek virgin like me, then try this as a jumping off point.
Truly delicious twist on the traditional shepherd's pie - I preferred this version for sure. The leeks and ham ratchet up the flavor from "family meal" to "mmmmm......"
