The make-ahead option is the real plus of these crunchy-topped potatoes in a creamy sauce. There's less to fuss about when you have at least one standby vegetable that just needs to bake and crisp while you carve the ham.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until almost tender, about 10 minutes; drain and let cool. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cover and cook leeks, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 7 minutes.

Stir in flour, salt, pepper and thyme; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk; cook, whisking, until thick enough to coat back of spoon, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Gently stir in potatoes to coat. Spread in 8-cup (2 L) casserole dish or 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Topping: In small bowl, stir together bread crumbs, cheese and butter until crumbly; sprinkle over potatoes. Bake, uncovered, in 425°F (220°C) oven until heated through and topping is browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
