Expert Tips

Don’t have whipping cream? Milk works just fine in this recipe, and it trims some of the calories, too.

Leeks are usually grown in sand, which can become embedded in the tight rings. So separate the slices into rings and rinse well before cooking.

Make the potatoes ahead of time and put them in your slow cooker on the Low heat setting to keep warm for up to 2 hours.
