Being the food snob that I am, I tend not to rave. But I will this time with 2 caveats: Step 2 says season to taste. This is absolutely critical, without it, the dish is too bland. Second: I used 3 1/2 Tbs butter and was glad that I did. This is definitely a dish to draw raves.

This was rich and delicious...but when it came to: season to taste...I took a taste and thought it needed some salt...so I added a touch...btw I cut the recipe down to serve one...I used just a dash of salt...but I can feel my fingers swell as I type...maybe it was the cheese..anyway it was delicious! Thanks for posting it...=)

Delicious! I'm a huge fan of leeks and I think they are underappreciated. The thyme seasoned this nicely. I also added some salt. I loved the cheddar (I used an extra sharp) on top, but I think next time I'll try sharp cheddar and parmesan or just parmesan. Thanx for posting!

This was really good! I cut the recipe in half for just two of us and we both really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting!

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this dish and my DH really loved it! I didn't follow the measurements exactly, because I started with frozen leeks and didn't know how many frozen sliced leeks equaled a fresh one. I sort of winged it and we ended up with about 3 good size servings. I used half and half in place of the heavy cream which curdled a little from the wine so it wasn't as pretty as the pictures posted, but still tasted great. I served this as a side dish with grilled ahi and green beans. Made for PRMRT

Oh yummy! I halved the recipe using 2 large leeks. I didn't have shallots, so used red onion. I loved it and ate a bunch! Thanks Noo! Made for PRMR.

This was fantastic. I didn't have cheddar on hand, so substituted a mixture of parmesan-romano instead. Just wonderful. I used it to top some noodles for a simple meatless meal tonight, and the whole family loved it. Thanks, Noo!

WOW: love leeks, loved this recipe! A great blend of fabulous flavours! We thoroughly enjoyed these Creamed Leeks as part of a vegetarian meal, and I wouldn't change a thing. I did use low-fat cream, which I always find makes no appreciable difference. This dish is going to be on the menu at our next family gathering, and I'll be increasing the quantities several times over. And when I next make it for us, the same, as I'll want to put some serves in the freezer. Thanks so much, Noo, for another fabulous recipe!
