Leeks are very popular in this house. Not among the short people, unless it's potato leek soup, but the adults eat leeks all ways. Here they are sauteed and spread onto bread about to go under the broiler with some smoked Gouda cheese on top.
Cooked leeks are not the best photo subject, but oh well. I topped with the hard cooked egg after the broil (but without the cheese, cause that's just too rich for me) and all of it is drizzled with a grainy mustard vinaigrette from Pete's homemade mustard* which is amazing and has been a staple in our house for about 7 years now.
*Update. The mustard recipe is here, he's made all three and does a lot of customizing. You have to try making it, you won't go back to store bough, ever.
We call this the mouth cam. At this point during dinner baby was yelling "Take a picture of my mac and cheese!" Why not? And notice she was eating mac and cheese, not fancy leek toast. That's how we roll around here.
This was all concocted after having a similar dish (minus the bread) at a nice restaurant (Lovely's Fifty-Fifty) and then seeing similar recipes in an old Everyday Food. Here's the grainy mustard vinaigrette recipe and the leeks on toast is based on this recipe, but it's highly customizable, and to me—incredibly delicious, if you are a vinegar, mustard, leek type person, which I am.
