Huge leek harvest....HELP!!!

I am harvesting my winter leeks and I have a lot. They are mostly small to medium size. I make a nice leek & potato soup, but that's about it.

Please send ideas!!! Thanks.

  1. I sub them anywhere that calls for onions, if that helps.

    1. Braised leeks ( in butter and/or olive oil) are divine. Also, I sometimes cut them in small half-moon shapes and simply sauté them. The braised ones use chicken stock in addition to the butter.

      1. I make Leek pie every so often. "Pre-sautee" both chopped double smoked bacon and chopped Leek and place them on nice Pizza dough. Add lots of pepper and caraway seeds and bake.

          1. Leek gratin is a decadent recipe to bid farewell to the cold weather. Leeks are also delicious stir fried in Szechuan recipes.
