    Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

    Prepare 6 slices bread (here I am using pieces of French baguette, but whatever bread you prefer will work just fine).

    Spoon a little of the creamed leeks onto each slice, then arrange a few thinnish slivers of Camembert on top.

    Bake for about 15 minutes, just until the Camembert has melted and has browned a little on the top.

    Serve piping hot.

Remarks:

Feel free to use a different cheese instead of Camembert, of course, but preferably one with a soft paste.

For a little more crunch, you can toast the bread before adding the topping.
