      I scaled this back for two for a yummy Sunday brunch which we really enjoyed. :) Love leeks, love brie but would never have thought of this particular combination. Ours were rustic rather than elegant: I left the crusts on the bread (ciabatta) and the rind on the brie. Although we're not sweet tooths, I included the sugar and think it added another dimension to the great blend of flavours. Ever uncomfortable when I come across "water" as an ingredient, I added a little lemon juice and a tiny bit of wine to the water I added. And decadently, I just had to add some butter on top of the toasted sandwiches when they came out of the oven: I just don't like the dryness of toasted bread without butter. This is certainly a recipe I'll make again and one I'll keep in mind when making a larger quantity is required. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Sharon! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

      Well it just goes to show how different tastes are. The last reviewer would have preferred sweeter and I actually think I'd have preferred it without the sugar! I love Laughing Cow cheese and onion sandwiches and thought maybe I was just a bit weird, but this is very similar...just much more elegant and more delicate flavors. Thanks for sharing!

      These little sandwiches were a nice surprise. We like brie & leeks, but had never paired them. Despite the more savory nature of the olive oil & garlic, I esp liked the hint of sweetness from the sugar, would have welcomed more of it & added the jelly to the pic for that reason. A lot of variations are possible. DH liked them a lot, but I'd prefer this combo served open face w/the brie melted over the leeks as an appy or top to bruschetta. Thx for posting.
