Q: What does one do when they have an abundance of leeks in the garden?
A: Google leek recipes of course!
Fortunately for me I know what I'm getting for Christmas this year, mainly because I bought it for myself and then handed it to Roge and said "here, this is what I want for Christmas"! I'm getting a pie maker and since I have these leeks running out of my ears, I thought I'd Google pie recipes.
There wasn't an objection by Roge that I'd cracked open my gift early (well he hadn't technically wrapped it yet any way) because anything that is to do with food is usually pretty good with him.
After going over a few recipes this was the best I found. I made Creamy Chicken and Leek Pies and the link to the website I used is here:
The pie maker was remarkably easy to use once all the prep work had been done and my pies were cooked within about 8 minutes.
I had some left over salads from the night before and viola, a beaut meal is on the table and I got to use up all those leeks. I ended up making 10 pies so I froze the excess which will make tea time a little easier in the weeks to come.
After a quick clean, the pie maker went back in it's box, ready to be wrapped and put under the Christmas tree!
