- 3 tablespoons butter
- 6 leeks (white and light green parts only), sliced

MethodIn large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) into small bowl. Set aside.
Fry leeks and half each of the salt and pepper in remaining butter, stirring often, until softened, about 8 minutes. Scrape all but 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the leeks into slow cooker.
