Our selections for this month from both cookbooks made for, what I thought, would be a fun dinner. So, I made them all one night (except I forgot about the Extra Edition pork sausage)! I was especially happy to share 2 of the recipes–the leeks and the spiced speculoos flan–because I’m not a hard-boiled egg or flan fan.
I, nevertheless, gave the flan a taste because if there’s one thing these cooking groups have taught me it’s that I could actually like the thing I’ve historically disliked. Alas, I’m still not a flan fan (or any of those really custardy desserts) because of the texture. The taste and, oh, that cookie butter…fabulous! I loved how easy this recipe was to put together and wish it was more to my palate because it’d be a go-to for sure.
We are definitely in leek season in these parts and I get them twice a month in my CSA box. I’ve made this dish before without the eggs and it’s okay, but my husband agreed it needs to be with the eggs. The people at the dinner all said they loved the egg/bacon to leek ratio and rated it a really lovely dish.
