A friend has teased me for some time about my fondness for using leeks freq as an ingredient, but I doubt it will chg while there are great recipes like this 1. I also added garlic, but it's the subtle flavour of the leek that shines here. We love leeks, we love these patties & they will visit our table often. Thx for posting.
