    Ive been making a very similar recipe to this using gruyere cheese since 1990 when I found it in Bon Apetit; using 3 leeks, white and light green parts only. It's a winner and I make it every Easter. I am actually going to try the havarti and see if I like it as much. I recommend putting in a small amount of dried tarragon for extra flavor. Use 2 1/2 tbls of the fresh tarragon and 1/4 tsp of the dried. You can put a few twigs of the fresh on as a topper for decoration during the last 5 minutes of baking too; Makes a great presentation. This recipe can be made the night before, covered with saran wrap and then baked right before company arrives for next day brunch. The best thing is that the leftovers are incredible and once this casserole settles, it's even better! Reheat individual portions in the microwave.

    Outstanding! Very delicious and hearty! Love the combo of leeks and fresh tarragon. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 8 x 8 dish, and it worked fine. I used havarti, as written, but would like to try it with Gruyere also.
