Potato Leek Skillet
Before sampling this recipe from a neighbor, I never had eaten leeks. I've since fallen in love with their mellow, slightly sweet flavor. This is a nice brunch dish.—Sharon Boyajian, Linden, California

Leeks are part of the onion family and resemble a large green onion. Sand is often found between their many layers. So if a leek is to be slice, cut it open lengthwise down one side and rinse under cold running water, separating the leaves.
