How to make a Leek pie!
So my girlfriend’s parents introduced me to Leek pie a while ago.
I really like it, and so I decided to make one myself.
Yesterday, I made it with my mum, and it looked like this:
I posted the pictures to my Facebook and Twitter, and got some questions how I made it and what the recipe is.
Well my dear friends, don’t worry, even the recipe is open-source 😛
Unfortunately, I did not make any pictures on the process of making it, so you’ll have to do with a text version.
The English version might be translated a bit janky, but then again, English is not my first language.
Like with all recipes, I recommend reading it once first before actually making it.
This way, it’s easier to make it as you should have memorized the recipe a little.

It may all look complicated at first, but once you get to it, you’ll see that it’s quite simple 🙂
My mum and I managed to do it in about 10 minutes, start to oven.
According to the mother of my girlfriend, it was an ideal student dinner.
It’s fairly cheap, and quite a bit, so you can do 2 days with it. (or 1 day if you’re like me…)
Be careful when eating it tho, it’s REALLY hot on the inside.
I hope you guys are gonna enjoy it as much as I do.
If so, don’t forget to share this recipe (maybe give a link to this page? 🙂 )!
For now, this it it.
