What is St. David's Day dinner without leeks? I was searching for a new recipe and when I saw that two of Recipezaar's resident cooking goddesses, Kittencal and French Tart, both had given this recipe rave reviews, I knew it would be good! I followed the recipe exactly as written. Wonderful! Thanks, ColCadsMom!

I simply *love* this recipe, I increased the butter and also sauteed 2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic in with the leeks, used fresh ground black pepper (lots of pepper!) my DH was lucky he got a little of this I ate almost the whole thing myself, so good, thank you for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

Very quick and tasty - made for ZWT3 and our lunch today! I did not cook these in broth however, and DH is not keen on cayenne pepper, so they were just creamed leeks - but as leeks are so sweet and fresh now, that was all to the good!

Made this to accompany roast chicken, substituted the cayenne with paprika and crumbled in half a beef stock cube, great result!

I made this as a side tonight with turkey meatballs, and ended up simmering the meatballs in the creamed leeks before serving over angel hair with roasted garlic brussel sprouts ... so, so good. Thanks for sharing!

So simple and sooo delicious! Made on a whim to go with grilled salmon, only because leeks looked good at the store. The measurements are VERY forgiving, I'd say. I used 2 leeks instead of 4 and totally estimated the rest of the ingredients - just pouring cream in, grinding salt and pepper, sitting outside with wine while it cooked, etc. As I came in to taste test, it just got better and better. I just posted the recipe on FB! It's simply wonderful!

Fabulous! Made it exactly per the recipe, except no salt. Used our lovely fresh leeks from our garden. Shared some with our neighbors who also loved it. Thanks!

I love leeks. I was glad to find a recipe like this where the leeks are the main attraction. This makes an excellent side dish. I used a bit less salt than called for - probably because of the saltiness of the chicken broth. If you love leeks, or are just looking for something different, this is for you! Thanx!
