This deliciously tender baked leek is coated in a rich and creamy feta and parmesan sauce then cooked until bubbling and golden.

This is a great side dish to roasted meats - perfect for Sunday lunch.

    Can you add more protein with this dish?

      This is so delicious! Rich, melty, & filling. I let it bake just a little longer to really carmelize the leeks. I make this often.

        This was easy and delicious. I shared it with my husband as a side dish. I will make this again.

          Is it one leek for four servings ? Or four leeks. Recipe says one each

            Look at the weight per serve. This shows only one leek.
