Melted Epoisses over leeks

Wash the leeks and take off the outside edges. Take a frying pan, put in half the butter.
Add 5cl of water, pour in the lemon juice (it needs squeezing first) and finally put in the leeks. Allow to cook for 15 to 20 minutes under a slow flame with the cover on the pan.

Mix the Epoisses with a fork adding the rest of the butter. Spread this mixture over the leeks and add salt and pepper.

Melted Epoisses over leeks is an ideal accompaniment for game dishes, or why not the turkey at Thanksgiving. An easy recipe to make with delicious results.
