Delicious recipe! You can also use this as the springboard for a light main dish. Try wrapping slices of ham around the leeks before baking, then serve with a side of mashed potatoes, rice or crusty bread. This alternative version is particularly attractive if you don't halve the leeks (but you would need to pre-cook them for about 8 minutes, then either use the leek broth in place of some of the milk, or add it to a soup later). You can also add another layer of flavor to this dish by stirring about 1/4 tsp. dry or prepared mustard into the sauce before baking.

This recipe was awesome. I tweaked it a little bit by doubling the cheese sauce and adding in a couple of potatos that were cut au gratin style. Very delicious!


4 stars with the additon of a buttered breadcrumb topping. It really makes the dish, adding crunch where otherwise there would only be mush. I wasn't crazy about the stringy texture of the leeks, which are fairly new to me. I cut off the green tops - was I supposed to peel off the outer layers too? Overall, a nice way to use up leftover leeks (I halved the sauce recipe to use on one large leek leftover from a stew.) This sauce would also work nicely for vidalia onions.
