Take a leek

Mr. Taster | Jan 25, 2005 04:08 PM

Hi 'hounds!

I just had a transcendent homemade mac & cheese experience. I made Alton Brown's recipe (see link) but I changed the recipe a bit by carmelizing some leeks and yellow onions (and cayenne pepper) before adding to the pre-cheese bechamel sauce mix. WOW, it was truly spectacular.

So now I'm on a leek kick... I've got a large one in the fridge right now. What standout entree (or side dish) recipes with leeks do you like? I'm thinking fish & veggies for dinner tonight, to balance out all the carbs and fat we ingested last night.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Mr. Taster
