...and the leek week continues
And we continue the leeky week. Today I made some lovely supper for me….creamed leeks with a baked egg. For that I cooked some sliced leeks in butter until soft but not browned and added a bit of cream and cooked it for a few minutes until the cream thickened a bit. Seasoned it with my herbed salt and some nutmeg. Greased two ramekins with butter and poured the cooked leeks into them. Broke an egg in each dish and drizzled a bit of cream around the egg yolk. Baked it in a bain marie for about 10 minutes (I like my yolk runny) and may I say….the dish was a nice supper dish on a dark and coldish August night (by the way, I even had the fire lightening). It may also be a nice starter….have to serve that next time.
