NWR Anyone cook with Leeks?

I was given 4 leeks (looks like huge green onion) and have no idea what to make with them. The only thing I ever knowingly had was leek soup. Anyone have something to share?? Something that goes with bbq?

I make Leek & Potato soup a lot but my absolute favourite leek recipe is this one:-

http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/turkey-recipes/turkey-and-sweet-leek-pie

I'm pretty sure FI would eat this every day if I made it! Unfortunately it doesn't really go with BBQ, but at least it gives you an idea of what to do with them!

You could always make them as a side dish :- cook up some chopped bacon and then take the bacon out add butter to the bacon fat and put the chopped leeks in. Cover and cook low for about 15 minutes (they should be nice and soft, if they're good leeks they will practically melt in your mouth) put the bacon bacon in and mix it up with some black pepper - yum
