It's getting cold outside! I recently came across a sandwich recipe that tastes just like you got it from a famous restaurant. You can feel fancy just like I did, and not have to do a lot of hard labor! I had my mother in law over for girl time and she really, really liked this sandwich. It almost tatses like a really good BLT. So move over soups, leeks can be used for sandwiches now!
WHITE CHEDDAR, TOMATO AND LEEK SANDWICH MELT
4 Slices Sourdough Bread
Mayo (Miracle Whip works well)
1 very large or 3 small Leeks, rinsed and chopped
2/3 c Shredded White Cheddar (mild melts best)
Heat frying pan on medium heat. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place 2 slices, buttered side down in the fry pan. Top with leeks and half of the cheese. Add layer of sliced tomatoes and top with the rest of the cheese. On the non-buttered side of the next two slices of bread, add a thin layer of mayo. Place slices on top of cheese with the mayo side down. Toast until bottom side is golden brown, flip and toast the other side until golden brown. It should look like a big fancy grilled cheese sandwich. Slice in half and serve hot.
Not sure how to prepare those leeks? Here is a great short video on how to prepare them. From then on, just chop into smaller pieces for your desired texture.
