    This recipe could not get much easier. I made for my husband and he LOVED it! I can't wait to make it again. Just be sure to clean your leeks throughly as they like to hold dirt!  -  13 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe! Used real potatos and potato starch instead of potato flakes also used soy milk! Turned out great!  -  11 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
