How to Prepare Leeks

Leeks are grown in sandy soil and must be washed well before using. To prepare leeks, trim the roots and remove the dark green portions. Only the white portion of the leek is used. Chop or slice the white sections, then rinse in water to remove any soil or sand.

    A bit bland. Found it very hard to get the cream cheese to blend in with the mixture. Not sure if I would make this again.

    This was very bland even though I added garlic salt, seasoning salt and more pepper and used herb and garlic cream cheese. It was quite time consuming to make also. Was not worth the trouble so will not make it again.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. I added garlic to it after reading the reviews and thought it turned out great! I will make this again!
