Shepherds pie with cheese crusted leeks

Sorry if this sounds dim, if anyone could tell me if the leeks are cooked before going on top of the potato in the oven.
Thanks.

Shepherd's pie

No, they are chopped and sprinkled on raw.

Topping for shepherds pie

Hi,I know it says in the recipe to sprinkle the leeks on raw ,but I find they are much better if you saute them in a little olive oil first for about 6 minutes
Put the pie in first with just the mashed potatoe for about 15 minutes, then add the leeks then the gtated cheese,back in the oven for another 15- to 20 minutes.
Delicious. I hope this helps

shep pie with cheesy leeks


I much prefer to blanch my leeks, for a couple of mins, drain really well then top the pie.
