Now, I, of course, adapted her recipe to meet my needs... i.e... I grilled these bad boys (okay, I added some really bad mayo too.. just to give it an added creaminess). But I can pretty much guarantee that either way you make it, you're going to want to make it again... and again... and again!! This has quickly become our favorite way to enjoy leeks!
Grilled Gratineed Leeks
Adapted from Mary, One Perfect Bite
- Serves 2 -
1 large leek, top dark green leave and root trimmed off, sliced lengthwise and rinsed under cold water (I separated the two halves to make four little "boats")
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons toasted panko breadcrumbs
Preheat grill to 350 degrees F. Tear off a large piece of aluminum and fold in half. Bring the sides up just a little to form sort of a tray. Spray with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil.
In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, lemon juice, and parmesan until well combined. Spread evenly over top of each leek half and top with mozzarella and then the panko. Place on the aluminum tray and place over in direct heat. Grill until the cheese is melted and the leek has become softened. Carefully remove and serve immediately. Enjoy!
