Carve an eye-catching serving bowl for this dip (and any others): Cut about a 4-inch-diameter round out of the top of a head of cabbage using a paring knife, then scrape out the center using a large metal spoon.
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 medium leeks, white and pale-green parts only, thinly sliced crosswise and rinsed well (about 3 cups)
- 2 cups sour cream
- 6 ounces soft goat cheese
- 6 strips bacon, cooked until crisp and coarsely chopped
- Coarse salt
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook leeks, stirring often, until caramelized, about 35 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
