Leek baked with Mozzarella di Buffola

9 comments Mar 4th, 2010 | By | Category: easy and fast, Recipes, Starters

I love leek. A fairly simple way of preparing leek is the following. Simply combined with Mozzarella di Buffola and good olive oil brings out the full flavour of the leek. A truly plain and delicous warm Mezze.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

easy recipe


  • leek
  • Mozzarella di Buffola
  • some rusks
  • Olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Bring water to boil in a small pot.

Wash the leek very well. Cut into 2 to 3 cm thick slices. I use the white as well as some of the leek.

Boil the leek int lightly salted water for about 10 minutes.

Take out the leek and let the water drain. Place into a small baking dish. Salt and pepper, then pour a little bit of olive oil over it. Put the Mozzarella cheese over it, crumle some rusk on top of the cheese and put the dish into the oven. Broil for 5 to 10 minutes.

  5. Yum! Reminds me of a dish I LOVE which is Belgian endives with ham au gratin with a lot of melted cheese oozing on top!

  6. Great idea Tobias…would work with many cheeses!

  7. I love leek as well, think I have some in my fridge right now. And when the recipe is this easy I have no reason not to try it!

  8. That sounds like such a flavorful side dish and yet it is so simple … just the way I like things!

  9. Wow! I’m already in love with your blog just from this recipe alone. I wish I was back in Athina to go to one of your super clubs…shhhh!!… too…
