  • Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Spread butter evenly on one side of each bread slice; place two slices, butter side down, in the pan. Top with leeks, half of the cheese, the tomato slices, then the remaining cheese. Spread the mayonnaise on the unbuttered side of the remaining two bread slices; place mayonnaise side down on the sandwich. Toast until golden brown, then flip, and brown the other side.

Much too rich decrease the cheese and use less leaks for sure sauteing the leaks in butter first helps soften them but it makes for an even richer sandwich with the addition of even more butter. I dont think ill make this again. My boyfriend liked it ok. We added turkey lunch meat.

This is a super rich sandwich! All that yummy cheese the buttered bread... wow! I love leeks I love cheese I love butter I love bread. Bring them all together and it's almost TOO rich! Next time I'll add more tomato as a balancing agent but this is a great sandwich.

Great variation from the typical grilled cheese sandwich. Saute the leeks to cut down on the "onion" flavor of the leek and it's a great sandwich!

I loved these. It's a great way to use leeks from the garden!

I used fresh mozzarella instead of cheddar. The sandwich was rich and tasty. I shared the recipe with some of my co-workers that are observing lent and not eating meat on fridays. They love it!

Fantastic update to the standard grilled cheese. Made this for lunch today put on a little Tony Bennett Duets and was loving life! I sauteed the leeks as another reviewer suggested and this made a huge difference! I also used mozzerella instead of white cheddar and was very happy with the results. I will be sharing this one with my girlfriends.

So rich and yummy! This will be just a once and a while sandwich for me but it is delicious and better be for all those calories! Did not find the leeks overpowering AT ALL! I used a wheat berry bread but that was my only change. Thanks!
