I substituted broccoli for the cauliflower and onion for the leeks - it was still fantastic and had a nice green color from the broccoli!

I tell you what! What a surprise...the flavor is incredible!!! Make sure you spend the money for GOOD Blue Cheese. I thought it sounded good, but man, I never expected this! It's very thick and creamy...(however, I added more bacon), but what a break from the norm!!!!
