  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan. Add the sausages and fry for 8-10 minutes until well browned. Remove the sausages, then slice them on the diagonal and set aside.

  2. Turn the heat to high, then add the potatoes and leeks and give them a good stir. Continue to cook on a fairly high heat until the potatoes begin to brown and turn crisp. Toss the sausage slices back in along with the creamed horseradish and heat for a further 2-3 minutes. Take the pan off the heat, sprinkle in the cheese, season well and gently stir to combine.

This was a big hit in our house as anything with cheese and leeks tends to be! Pre cooking the potatoes is the way to do it (as the ingredients list says). I use half fat creme fraiche rather than horse radish sauce.

I have cooked this recipe three times now and not only has it gone down a treat with my friends but also my family and 18mnth old niece!. I've not had a problem with timing the potatoes to cook in time personally. Such a great dish my sister left with the recipe. Thank you good food :)

It tasted great, but the potatoes actually took a lot longer to cook than the leek, which was beginning to burn before the potatoes were done so I ended up having to microwave them I for a few minutes before could add the sausages. To anyone considering this recipe I would recommend using pre-cooked potatoes.

I used horseradish and mustard which tasted great. great recipe and very easy

Nice and easy and quick too if you already have the potatoes cooked. I realised when making it that the potatoes needed to be done first so this took longer than hoped. Having said that I would definately make again.

Good comfort food on a cold winter's evening. Don't make in too large a quantity though - can be a bit cloying!

This is a great recipe, and is also a good way to use up any left over veg. I use wholegrain mustard instead of horseradish which works really well.
