The delicious duo of leek & potato is too good to keep just for soup. Here it stars in a Leek & Potato Frittata, deliciously servable for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
One of the best things about frittata, is that it’s a dish that comes together very fast.
To make this one come together even quicker, when you get home with your shopping, trim and sauté the bundle of leeks all at once in a large skillet! When cooled, store in the fridge, and they’re ready to use in any number of savoury recipes – frittata included!
Quantities are approximate for all the vegetables, so use what you have. In fact, frittata is a famous vehicle to clean out bits & pieces of what you have in your fridge & pantry. That’s Italian ingenuity!
One of the other great things about frittata is that you can really serve it at any meal time. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, it really is very versatile.
Great served any time, at any temperature, line-up your usual suspects of condiments and enjoy~ My personal fave is red pepper jelly, on a slice served cold – straight out of the fridge!
