    I didn't really taste the leeks but was pleased at how easily these cakes went together. We served them along side the Ginger-Thyme Brined Pork Roast as pictured in the magazine. The sauce was interesting - next time I'd make it ahead of time as the sauce was more flavorful the next day. These cakes would make a great accompaniment to grilled steaks.

    We just made the sauce for potatoes, and it was great! It tastes a lot lighter than you think it's going to.

    These are really really good. I made the sauce with full fat sour cream (!) and it was awesome.

    We loved these as a side dish with a chicken sausage and some beet greens. I cut the recipe by 25% for me and spouse, and it was just right. I used nonfat plain yogurt in place of sour cream, yellow onion in place of leeks, dried chives instead of fresh, and subbed 2 TB liquid egg whites for the 1/4 egg that would have been needed.I also used a reduced fat blue cheese. And I added ground red pepper to the sauce. These were small changes that probably didn't affect the flavor much. Okay, and the biggest change was that I used the one teaspoon of bacon fat left over from morning bacon as shortening in the iron skillet. The whole thing was delicious!
