I've never had leeks before, but I really wanted to try this recipe. I made minor adjustments, but it turned out great! Since I'm vegetarian, I did a TVP "bacon" recipe in place of real bacon and sauteed the leeks in some a bit of butter. I also split the recipe and did 2 pans so that each well only had one egg (4 eggs per pan), and I added a sprinkle of sugar and thyme when cooking down the leeks to bring out the flavor a bit more. The flavors are beautiful, the eggs pair with the leeks well, and it was a very easy breakfast that I'm really hoping I can reheat juts as easily in a microwave at work .
