Use more leeks

This came out quite well. I got compliments and was asked for the recipe. I think 2 leeks, as called for in the recipe, is not enough. Of course, with leeks, even "large" leeks, you never know exactly how much useable leek you will get. I will use more leeks next time. I used fresh thyme, which means spending some time (yeah, I know) stripping the little leaves off. If you're in a hurry use dried. Otherwise, I used the slicing disk of a food processor for the sweet potatoes and a mandoline for the potatoes (prettier that way). So that part was pretty quick.

Re the instructions; Why use cooking spray on the pie pan when you are going to use parchment paper or foil to line the bottom? OK, if you're using foil you should lightly coat that.

easy, looks great, can be made day before

Always get asked for this recipe

Super easy if you slice ingredients in a food processor. Reheats well, and is a crowd-pleaser. I've made this for parties many times since it first appeared in the "old" Eating Well magazine, and always get asked for the recipe. Be sure to use enough salt and pepper, though.

can make ahead, easy, very pretty

Nothing Special

I was really looking for a special potato side I could use for holidays and special occasions. This didn't do it for me. The flavors didn't come together. I won't be making it again.

The flavors were good but it didn't set up like a "cake" for me. It was a nice way of preparing potatoes in the oven to save the stoptop work. I may or may not make this again - not sure.
