    Prepared this as a make-ahead side for Thanksgiving. So different from the usual; everyone LOVED it!<br/>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.

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