    Pets'R'us's Note:

    Leeks with cheese is a traditional dish in the Netherlands, the two mustards add a nice tang to this dish. If you are not a big mustard fan, start with using 1/2 tablespoons of the mustard.

      I think Bergy said it all for me in her review. These were great leeks. I didn't use the cheddar cheese (when I discovered I didn't have any!) but I used a very sharp and quite fresh textured buffalo cheese. It's supposed to be a good melting cheese, and worked really well in this dish.

      I love to find good recipes for leeks - they are such an underated veggie. This is an excellent recipe the only thing I changed I cut back a bit on the cheese and used Danbo - a Danish Low Fat Cheese that is excellent for cooked very flavorful The blend of the mustards & cheeses complimented the leeks and the bit of crumb on top finishes the dish - I cut the recipe in half with no problen. Thanks Annelies I love your recipes

      Prepared this as a make-ahead side for Thanksgiving. So different from the usual; everyone LOVED it!
      I TRIPLED the recipe for twelve medium/large leeks. Prepared everything the day before and put in a 9x13 ceramic baker - lasagne-depth, but there was way too much sauce (I saved 1.5-2 cups and figure I'll make braised endive or etc later in the week). In the fridge over night. Since the casserole started cool, I baked it at 350 for an hour - mostly because that was the temp needed for the cornbread. It also allowed us to leave the turkey "rest."
