Sausage, Leek, and Potato Pie


What to do with leeks? Everything you’d do with onions, garlics, ramps, and so on. Leeks are milder than onions (and much milder than ramps), but they add a delicious flavor to any savory dish and can even stand out on their own. I love main dish pies, and this is one of my favorites. You can also make it using onions instead of leeks (or even ramps, if you’re crazy like me!).

How to make Sausage, Leek, and Potato Pie:

1 pound bulk sausage
2 cups roughly chopped leeks
2 cups diced potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
seasonings to taste (salt, pepper, garlic)
pastry for double-crust pie

Cook sausage; drain, leaving the fat in the pan.

Chop leeks and potatoes. (Save the leek root ends to plant! See how here.)

Add to pan with the fat.

Saute for several minutes on medium-high then cover the pot. Turn to Low and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove leeks and potatoes from pan; drain.

Remove any remaining grease from the pan. Add butter and flour, stirring to make a roux. Gradually stir in milk.

Add cheese, stirring to melt. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Line a pie pan with pastry. Combine sausage, leeks, and potatoes; spoon into lined pie plate. Pour cheese sauce over meat and vegetables. Sprinkle parsley over the mixture.

Top with remaining pastry.

Bake at 350-degrees (on lower oven rack) for 40 minutes.

Did you notice that the pastry I’m using is a little bit different? I made it with the homemade all-purpose multi-grain flour mix that I’ve been experimenting with. When I’m finished testing, I’ll share! I’m loving it.

    Having lived on the west coast all my life, I had never heard of ramps. Had to look them up. Wow, they sound positively dangerous! I think I’ll stick with leeks or onions. This recipe sounds – and looks – fantastic! I did notice the difference in the pastry. It looks good too. Full of healthy grains, I’ll bet. :yes:

    ooooh yum…I’m making this soon, but I think I might use sliced ham or something. Sausage is delicious, but the last few years I don’t trust anything ground up that I didn’t make.
    I noticed your pie crust looked differant right away, is the multi-grain flour something you mixed yourself or is it available at the grocery store, I’ve never noticed it.

    The flour mixture is something I made myself.

    This looks delicious!! Thanks for sharing! :hungry:

    That sounds amazing! :) We do a lot of cooking with leeks around here, and I’ve always combined them with bacon (our favorite is a risotto or a pasta with the two). Sausage would go really well too, but somehow I never thought of it! I think I’ll have to try this. :)

    Oh, Suzanne, that looks sooooo good! I love main dish pies, too. This one sounds like a keeper. Thaks so much for the recipe. Oh, and I’m interested in your flour experiment. Can’t wait to hear the results!

  10. 9-17

    I noticed the different pie crust immediately. See? I have been paying attention.

    Made this for dinner tonight. Too, too good. Definitely a keeper. The only sausage in the freezer was deer sausage. This made a superb pie with the addition of some sage from the garden. Will make this many times and share with comfort loving foody friends.

    I just made the sausage,leek and potato pie this weekend. My family absolutely loved it! It was so delicious! I added mushrooms to it and I was thinking you could use other meats as well. Thank you for sharing. Its definitely a keeper!

    I enjoy visiting every day; don’t miss a aday!! Sooooo much information. I made the country style green beans last weekend, they were excellent. My husband told me they weren’t bad for a Yankee!! He’s been eating them that way his whole life. Well so much for a short comment. Short comments is not my strong suit. Look forward to more…..

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
