    About this recipe: It's an original French recipe My Mum used to bake during the holidays. Great to eat with a salad during cool months. Absolutely Delicious!!! Can be prepared the day before and served as a starter or main dish. Can substitute Emmental for Gruyere cheese.

    • 2 teaspoons (30g) butter
    • 3 leeks, chopped
    • 1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste
