Fleming's Potatoes Recipe

About: This dish is a heaping loaf of thinly sliced au gratin potatoes with two types of cheese, jalapeños, and leeks incorporated between the layers. It is an indulgent dish from top to bottom, finished off with a thick layer of melted cheese, butter, and cream then baked to create a crisp outer crust. One bite in, and you will understand why this is a signature dish here at Fleming’s.
