“And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat? / We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick: / But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.” Numbers 11:4-5
Slice the leeks into large pieces. Boil the leeks in 2 cups of milk until they are soft. Strain the leeks out of the pot (leaving the milk) and arrange in a baking dish. Add cream and seasoning to milk and continue to simmer until it begins to reduce. Pour mixture over leeks in dish and cover with cheese. Bake for 35-45 minutes at 350.
