  5. Peel boiled potatoes and slice thinly.
  6. Great a gratin form with butter and spread potatoe slices in the form evenly.
  7. First layer the leeks and then the asparagus on top of the potatoes.
  8. Beat the eggs and mix with the sour cream, add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Pour the mixture over the vegetables in the gratin form. Place in oven.
  10. Mix the cheese, bread crumbs, and parsley – after 20 minutes sprinkle evenly over the gratin and bake another 15 minutes.
