Homegrown Leeks

I have grown leeks in my vegetable garden following the advice of Top Veg and the results have been good. I am just harvesting the final leeks and I am wondering how I will prepare them.
Many of the leeks have been boiled or steamed and served with the traditional roast dinner.
On occasion I have made a rich cheese sauce to serve over the leeks. Cheesey leeks compliments roasted guinea fowl or pheasant very well.
Sometimes I have microwaved the leeks with a selection of vegetables and topped the dish with cooked tomatoes and cheese. A family favourite which goes well with any roast dinner, shepherd’s pie or sausage casserole.
I love to make soups and a great Winter warmer is leek and potato soup.
As these are the last leeks in my garden, I think I will steam them and serve them with butter drizzled over them, so that I can relish the flavour of my homegrown leeks.
