Help! Can someone tell me what "lineups milk" is??!

Hi Everyone,

I was looking at recipes because I want to bake a Leek Casserole. One of the recipes listed "LINEUPS MILK" as an ingredient. I have no idea what this is, nor can I find a definition online or in my dictionary.

Does anyone know what "lineups milk" is? And can I use regular milk or 1/2 & 1/2 instead?

      Looks like this is the original recipe source:

      I'm also bewildered by 'lineups'. Brand name? Typo?

      (And unrelated, why doesn't the green part of leeks get the love? So sad.)

        "Lineups milk" - notice that the quantity is missing. It probably should read 'xxx cups milk', 2 cups, 1 1/2 cups? This might be a variation on a 'self crusting quiche' recipe. I'd either skip this recipe, or find a quiche with similar proportions.

          Brilliant, paulj. You must have been a ciphers champion.

            I agree - this is definitely a typo, you don't want to try to make this unless you already know enough about quiches to know exactly how much milk this will require.

            And Duchess - it's quite common for recipes to call for using only the white part of leeks - the green can be awfully tough and fibrous.

              But do use the green parts when making stock!

                Oh, I know it's common, BobB, but I have Total LeekLove. :) I'm sure it affects my cooking with leeks but I still use the greens.

                  Oh! Thanks to all of you... I thought it was some kind of regional slang for cream or 1/2 & 1/2. Darn those typos!

                  Thinly sliced, the green isn't bad in stir-fry.
