    This was a great way to use leek I HAD to use. I doubled the quantity, but I cooked a bit longer to reduce the volume. <br/>The mild sauce went very well with them. I prepared these in advance for tomorrow. They are easy to carry and would be perfect for picnics as well. Thanks a lot Jan!

    Made this without the sauce and doubled the leeks for extra flavour -- was super delicious and reminded me of Chinese spring onion omelettes. After reading the reviews I got round the fiddliness problem by frying the patties in kawaii heart-shaped pancake/omelette tin moulds... if you don't make them too thick they should set easily, otherwise just flip them superfast once the bottom half has set. (Without the mould the mixture is very liquid and will not form into patties, even with twice the amount of leek.) Serving size is a bit too small, I ended up with four small patties only.

    I dodn't think that all four eggs were needed for these patties, but I was very wrong. I ended up with leek-and-egg scramble, which was quite good as well. I didn't have time to make the sauce, so I just sprinkled a bit of rice wine vinegar on the top of it and it was quite good. These get 4 stars because I am sure they would be wonderful if I had done it correctly.

    I have given this 3 stars just because of the fiddliness of making them. I prepared the sauce and found it quite thin I would have like it to "cling" more to the patties. I found the patties quite difficult to make, I made four by putting a forkful of leeks in the pan but thought I would end up with a lot of egg left so the next batch I made as a big omlette and rolled up. This made it much easier to handle and eat. I think if I were to do this again I would dice rather than shred the leeks.
