Buttery Braised Leeks with a Crispy Panko Topping by for the love of the south

WHO: for the love of the south is a food blogger who has a way with leeks.
WHAT: A balanced, buttery side you'll want to eat all by itself.
HOW: Just brown, braise, bread, and serve!
WHY WE LOVE IT: You'd think a dish with "buttery" in the title would be overwhelmingly rich. You'd be wrong. Lemon and parsley don't let all of that butter steal the show -- they keep the whole dish in check. You'll have to keep going back for more, just to see how good these really are.
