Easy Creamy Leek Potatoes

April 24, 2013

This recipe post seems a bit silly to me because it could not be easier.  These are the most simple yet DELICIOUS potatoes I have ever put in my mouth.  Lol!  No, seriously.  I admit that I overuse the word amazing but these truly qualify as AMAZING.  I made BBQ short ribs this past Sunday and {as usual} was struggling with the side dishes.  I was going to make mashed potatoes but remembered I had this leek soup mix packet in the pantry from the winter when I wanted to make potato leek soup. It was the perfect idea to whip these up because this recipe will now be a standby for my family.
2-3 Pounds of Russet Potatoes
2 Cans Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup Milk
3-4 Tablespoons Butter
3-4 Tablespoons Heavy Cream {or milk}
1 Packet Knorr Leek Recipe Mix
{Start by peeling and thinly slicing your Russet potatoes.  Use as many as you wish - I used about 8 medium potatoes.}
{Admittedly, this leek recipe mix is pretty tough to find.  I had to check 3 stores back in January and finally found them at the Shop Rite.  The Knorr vegetable soup mix was pretty abundant but the leek, not so much.  But you HAVE to find it. LOL! Makes a world of difference.  I love using easy flavor shortcuts like these.  Recipe starters. The best!}
{Add 2 cans of chicken broth to a large pot to boil the potatoes in.  You could also just use water, but the stock adds flavor. :)}
{Add about 1/2 cup of milk to the broth.  Again, you could just use plain ole' water but I thought the milk+stock added to the creaminess and flavor of this dish.}
{Boil your potatoes in the broth/milk mixture until fork tender.  It shouldn't take too long since they were thinly sliced.}
{Once tender, drain off most of the milk/stock mixture, leaving about a 1/4 cup to create the moisture needed once you add the leek mix.  Add in a few tablespoons of butter once drained.}
{Sprinkle in the full packet of leek recipe mix.}
{Add in a few tablespoons of heavy cream {or milk}, or as much needed to create a creamy sauce.  Taste for salt and pepper and serve.} 
See!  I told you.  So easy and so so good.  As with all my flavorful recipes, I have to say it... this is a must try! :)  I pretty much ate this entire pot.
P.S. See that short rib up there? My brown sugar glazed bbq short ribs. DIVINE. I mean DIVINE.  Let me know if you would like a recipe post. :)  I need another excuse to make them.  My husband would be reallllllly happy, LOL!
xoxo, thanks for reading!
