Position a rack in top third of oven; preheat to 350 degrees F. Whisk eggs, cream, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 3/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl; set aside.

Add leeks to skillet. Season with salt; cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in same skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, spreading out in an even layer. Cook without stirring until bottom and edges are crisp and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Slide potato pancake onto a large plate.
