- Place a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil and butter. Add sliced leeks to the pan and sauté for about 10 minutes. Season them with salt and black pepper to taste. Lower the heat if color appears on leeks. Remove from heat and set aside.

You can use the homemade filo dough, which is a little bit thicker than a usual filo paper, but it will give a more rustic touch.
