Thanks so much for the ideas. They all sound yummy. I used some in a chicken veggie soup. The rest I think I'll try Breezycooking's Idea with the Blue cheese dressing. I think my husband would eat cardboard if I coated it with Blue Cheese.

Oh - & while I drain the leeks before plating them & topping them with the dressing, I also definitely save the broth mixture they were cooked in for soup - it's delicious!!

I once had chicory served in the following way but I bet it would be even better with leeks:

Poach some cleaned leeks till cooked. Poach whole if you think they'll be grit free, otherwise do as BreezyCooking suggests (cut in half, clean and then reconstruct). Butter a baking dish. Wrap each leek in a piece of ham. Lay side by side in the baking dish and cover with bechamel or cheese sauce. Sprinkle more cheese on top and then bake in the oven till browned.
