Okay, I haven’t made this yet, but just the thought of it is getting me excited!!! I’m headed to town to get the leaks. I’m also anxiously awaiting the crust recipe:)

I whipped up a vegan version of this lovely thing, using vegetarian sausage,soy based cheese, and almond milk. A friend had just given me a bag of spinach from his garden, so I opted to throw in a cup of chopped greens to the mix. The result was off the charts, insanely delicious!! This will most definitely grace the table this coming Thanksgiving.

I finally made this, my crust was not even as light and flaky (looking) as Suzanne’s, but the overall taste was amazing. A new favorite at our house!!!!
