I've been making these pies for years, so lots of friends and family now have the recipe. If you can't find leeks, a sweet or mild onion works just as well. —Bonny Tillman, Acworth, Georgia

This was so absolutely delicious. Simple too. I did not have 10 inch ramekins so I used a large oval baking dish and just covered It with the sheet of puff pastry. It was great reheated as well. Simply yummy!

To freeze the recipe, do all the steps, up until the pastry step, put it in individual ramekins or one large casserole dish and freeze. When ready to bake, thaw, then do the puff pastry step, and bake as directed. If using a large casserole, bake 40 minutes. Cover edges of pastry so it won't burn. Wonderful recipe!
