Default killer leek recipes needed

we've had a stretch of milder temps so I took the opportunity to dig out / harvest my garden leeks.



I use these in stews, braise as a side, etc. - have made potato leek soup a couple times but never found a killer recipe - anybody have a good one?

or other ideas?

they'll last I'm guess about two weeks in the crisper....

How about potato pancakes. You could make them ahead, and freeze for later. Serve with homemade applesauce, horseradish/sour cream or Tzatziki.

Well, Chowder, I love leeks, and always put at least 3 giant ones in my Irish lamb stew.

But I'm going to try grilling them next. Bobby Flay's recipe looks like a good place to start, but I'm going to use chicken broth instead of clam juice.

While browsing through the Los Angeles Times, I came across these two luscious-looking dishes.

Salmon in mustard/cream sauce with leeks & carrots

http://www.latimes.com/features/la-f...,1841776.story


Le Pain Quotidien's quiche combines generous amounts of sautéed leeks and onions, diced ham and grated Swiss cheese suspended in a fluffy egg filling and baked in a crisp, buttery pastry crust.

I will post my potato & leek soup. I also have a recipe for a sausage & leek supper that works quite well - a basic filling dish. I will post them and then link back.

oh, good looking stuff - thanks!

CC - I think sometime last century I did a similar cauliflower dish - it was good, nice flavor combo - but I had forgotten all about it. it's on the menu for tonight!

MM - that soup in on the list for later this week. I may have to add a little bacon (g)

always on the prowl for a good salmon variation - so that's printed out as well!

Butternut squash ravioli with browned butter and caramelized leeks

Salmon with sweated leeks, bacon and dijon

Stewed pork with leeks, potatoes and natural jus

Anything leek and bacon is gonna be a winner, either as ingredients, or topping/nage/filling/stuffing. . .they really respond well to ALL cooking methods, but for me, low and slow in lots of butter, the leeks themselves once cooked down will become very velvety, and SO sweet. I LOVE LOVE LOVE EM! And, pan fried until crisp makes an awesome topping for a pork chop, filet, fillet, soup, practically anything.

ah,,, butternut & leeks - sounds like a winner! straight onto my list!

did the cauliflower dish last night. stupendous raves.
my nutmeg nut apparently is lost in the Christmas cookie shuffle so I had to use ground nutmeg, and used a combo of parm & coarse grated smoked Gouda. splendid dish - highly recommended!

DW, upon going for seconds,,, noted "Oh, you made this with heavy cream?" (she's dieting....) ".. no wonder it's so good."

served with meatloaf. now... DW likes a tomato topping on her meatloaf. I don't especially care for that but..... I usually use a can of tomato sauce, but had a little leftover Ragu Traditional from eggplant parm, so used that. also commented as "save that recipe...." wonder if I should tell (g)?

The cauliflower is a rave here as well, particularlly for Thanksgiving w/ roast turkey. Gruyere is good too. Glad you enjoyed the dish.

Yes, that is a little better, Peep.

But both are still too smiley.

I wish "errm"'s eyes rolled.

We went to a little restaurant/Pub (while driving to florida on vaction) in Georgia I think it specialized in mostly Irish and Scotish Pub foods. We tried the Cock-a-leeky soup. I didn't think it was "leeky" enough. LOL

Real cock-a-leekie is a true thing to behold and devour.
I've had it in Scotland... it's kinda sweet and has bacon, rice and yes.. prunes too.
The Horseshoe in Glasgow serves it on Burns night.. or at least they did back then.

I ALWAYS put the green leek tops in the pot when making chicken stock. And I use the white part in the soup.
