It all started on the International Patriotic Challenge thread because I said I was doing an applique of a leek to represent Wales.
Post your leek recipes here, let's see how many we end up with!
Try a taste of Britain...
LEEK AND STILTON FLAN
Line a flan dish with pastry and blind bake it.
Meanwhile, gently cook sliced leek in a covered pan with a large knob of butter. When it is soft, drain off the liquid. (Do not throw it away, use to add to soup or sauces - too delicious to waste).
Allow pastry case to cool.
Put drained leek into pastry case with crumbled Stilton.
Beat 3 eggs with about a dessert spoon of milk, and salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the leeks and Stilton, and bake the flan in a moderate oven until golden brown on top.
Nice hot, but probably even better cold.
Any English cheese will do, but Stilton is the ultimate in this flan, and with a bit of luck children will turn their noses up and leave it all for the grown ups.
