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."

Wow was that sauce good! But there was so much of it, and it was a bit soupy. Family LOVED the taste, and we spent most of dinner talking about other things we'd use the same sauce for: poached eggs, pasta with fish, braised endives. I'll try it again, I'm sure, and maybe figure out what I did (or didn't) do right.

These leeks are terrific! I made the recipe exactly as written. Loved the cheese and mustard flavor. I've never prepared leeks like this before, but now I have a new favorite was of making leeks! Thanx for the recipe!

Very good! I really enjoyed these leeks - full of flavor and cheesy but not over-powering. Thanks for a great leek recipe!
