Frizzled Leeks

-Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

-Cut 2-3 leeks in half the long way leaving most of the greens and clean them thoroughly under running water.

-Slice the leeks lengthwise into long thin strips (not rounds).

-Heat 2 TBS olive oil in a large skillet and fry the leeks for 5 minutes over medium high heat, stirring frequently.

-Transfer the leeks to a baking pan, spread them out and bake for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes until done.

-Watch them closely so they don’t burn, but they should get very crispy.

-Sprinkle with salt and let cool.

-Serve the leeks as a side or crumbled on to salad or soup, they taste a lot like onion rings.
