• 1/2 c. seasoned breadcrumbs


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an ovenproof baking dish. Cut each leek half into a 6-inch length and rinse well under running water. Cook in salted boiling water for 5 minutes, or until slightly tender; drain.

Put the leeks, cut-side up, in the prepared dish, pour in the cream, and sprinkle with the cheese, salt and pepper. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cream has thickened and the cheese has melted.

Remove from the oven and preheat the broiler. Sprinkle the leeks with the breadcrumbs, then place the dish under the broiler, 4 inches from the heat source, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve immediately.
