I make this dip once a year for family, friends, and co-workers. Everyone LOVES it! Only wild leeks will suit this recipe. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips. This dip will taste best after 24 hours.

I used turkey bacon and reduced fat cream cheese. I think this makes a better spread than it does a dip for us anyway. Next time I think I'll try this with half reduced sour cream and then try it as a dip. NOTE: The longer it sits the better it gets. Read More

This dip was way too strong tasting even for me. Not having had leeks before I understand that this is unfair but be careful.... Read More

My husband LOVED this. I made a couple changes. First it was way too much for a first taste so I did a 6th of the recipe which was a very manageable amount - made about 1 cup or a little more. I also added some sour cream (maybe 1/2 cup?) to make it a little less thick. I did the bacon but I don't think it changed the flavor all that much. I'd probably leave it out next time just to save time and money. Read More

This was good but I used only half the leeks called for and and still found the onion flavor a bit sharp. Next time I may try carmelizing the leeks before mixing them into the dip. Also I thought this dip was beter warmed up than served chilled. Read More

Really good recipe. I found the amount of leeks to be too many but that might have been my fault - it was my first time using them. I have sinde learned that you are only supposed to use the white parts which I did not so I just eye-balled the amount that I actually used. Also used real bacon pieces instead of frying bacon for this dip... It really was good... I can't wait to make it again! Read More
