Clean and wash the leeks, cut into big chunks and cook them in a little salt water until tender. Drain and set aside until required. Cook the potatoes in salted water until tender, drain and set aside until required.

Next, make up the cheese sauce by frying the low fat spread in a saucepan until bubbling gently. Then add all the flour and stir to form a smooth paste, pour in all the milk in one go and whisk until smooth. Stir in the seasoning and the cheese and simmer very gently, stirring frequently, for about 15 minutes. Take off the heat. Stir the leeks, potatoes and ham into the sauce and pour all this into a large ovenproof dish.

Make the cheese scone dough by rubbing the wholemeal flour, low fat spread, milk and grated cheese together with enough milk to form a fairly stiff dough. Do not overwork the dough or it will get too heavy and dry. Roll it out onto a floured surface. Cut the dough into even circles and lay them on top of the leeks, ham and potatoes.

Brush with a little milk and bake in a pre-heated oven at 220øC/425øF/gas mark 7 for about 12 minutes. Serve piping hot.
