Stuffed Leeks

Country: Gibraltar
Course: Side
Makes: 6 to 8 Servings


  • 2 slices smoked bacon, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 large leeks
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
  • about 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 large potato
  1. Cut your leeks up into cylinders about two inches in length. Carefully push out the center layers of the leeks, leaving the outer two layers intact.
  2. Chop up the center bits of your leeks and saute them with the onions, bacon and butter until soft (note: you'll probably have more leek than you can use). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Mash the potato wedges and add them to the pan with the milk and cheese. Add enough flour to make a sticky paste.
  4. Stuff your leek tubes with the filling you just made. Cook at 350 degrees for five or 10 minutes, or until the filling starts to turn a little golden on top.
