I am giving you
my favorite savory pie recipe. It's so simple, but the ultimate delicious.
I have brought this pie to many many pot lucks and received the praise that
I am always secretly seeking at such events.

Leek and Mustard Pie (from the Greens)

4 to 5 cups leeks, cut into 1/4" rings
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 c white wine or water
1/2 tsp salt
Peeper to taste
2 eggs
1 cup crème fraiche (or cream or half and half)
3 tablespoons of good quality mustard
3 oz gruyere cheese
3 ounces 2 tablespoons chives, cut into narrow rounds.

Your favorite crust partially pre-baked.

Pre heat oven to 375. Wash leeks and set them aside. Melt butter in wide
skillet med heat. Add leeks w/ water that clings to them, stir for 2-3 min.
Add wine/water and salt, cover reduce heat and cook slowly till leeks are
tender, 10 to 15 min. Check after 7 and add more liquid if ness. In bowl
beat eggs. Add crème, mustard, leeks and cheese. Pour into crust. Scatter
chives on top. Bake this baby till it's golden brown about 35/ 40 min.
