I'm looking for a recipe I had found years ago, it was in a magazine I believe. It is called Country Leek Flan.

Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but is the one I use.
Leek and Cheese Flan
1 pie crust (1/2 package)
2 large leeks, washed and sliced thin
1/2 cup butter
3 large eggs
3 ounces milk
3 ounces sour cream
6 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1. Set oven to 400 degrees
2. Line a 9 inch pie pan (or flan tin) with pie crust.
3. Saute leeks until soft, season with black pepper and cool.
4. Whisk together the eggs, milk and sour cream. Add salt and then half the cheese and leeks to this mixture.
5. Pour into pie pan and sprinkle with rest of cheese. Grate nutmeg over, place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes until brown.
Because our family is milk/cheese intolerant, any recipe with cheese might not work for us. However, at the natural foods market this week, their sample table included the best recipe you might also enjoy since you are searching for one with leeks:
Apple-sausage slices steamed with tomatoes and leeks galore. It was so very good that I plan to try this for us. I forget to BEGIN with onions, leeks, or garlic, which are SO good for us. I also forget that
cooked tomatoes might turn to mush if not watched, but that they, too, are VERY good for us and so easy to serve up. Good luck and God bless. : )
