Pork Schnitzel With Creamed Leeks

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Kiwi Kathy

Found this recipe on the internet when looking for something to use some schnitzel and a leek that I had in the fridge. Nice and easy plus very tasty. Made a perfect Friday night whip-up. I didn't have fresh herbs so sub'ed with dried herbs and omitted the parsley, but have copied the recipe as it was originally submitted. Will definitely be making again.
