I had a leek left over from the previous night and wanted to use the rest of it. I thought why not fry the chopped pieces with mushrooms in the place of onions. Believe it or not leeks actually go well in a fry up. I think it is because they originate from the onion family and they taste delicious fried in butter.
This is great to have on a Saturday morning for breakfast or brunch. When you add delicious mushrooms and a soft fried egg you have hit the jackpot. The flavours are unbelievable.
