    evelyn/athens's Note:

    I love frittatas cause they can be made several hours in advance and served later in the day, at room temperature - when I think they taste best.

    1. 1
      Steam potatoes, covered, for 20-25 minutes, or until tender.
    2. 2
      Let cool until they can be handled.
    3. 3
      Peel and cut crosswise into thin slices.
    4. 4
      In a 12 inch non-stick skillet, cook the leek in the butter over moderately-low heat, stirring, for 12-15 minutes, or until very soft.
    5. 5
      Season to taste.
    6. 6
      In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, ½ cup parmesan, ½ cup gruyere, chives, parsley and season to taste.
    7. 7
      Whisk until combined well.
    8. 8
      Stir in leek and potatoes.
    9. 9
      In the cleaned skillet, heat the oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking.
    10. 10
      Pour in egg mixture, distributing potatoes evenly, and cook, without stirring, for 10-12 minutes, or until edge is set but center is slightly soft.

      Great, simple supper. I did sub onions for the leeks and added a bit of chopped ham. BF was impressed when I flipped it over on the serving plate....BTW it looked beautiful, all golden and crispy and it tasted just a spectacular. TY Evelyn, we both loved it!

      What a DISASTER. I've never cooked fritatta, but I discovered (way too late) that the instructions here result a scorched bottom and sides and raw, runny middle. I recommend following these instead:

      If that wasn't enough, this was blander than bland. Don't bother!

      We added a bit of cauliflower to get extra veg - we didn't have parmesan or gruyere cheese, but used a stong and bitey cheddar. Lovely comfort type food - great for a cold winter/autumn night. Will try adding some speck, pancetta chunks, bacon or similar for a little punch of flavour and re-review. Thanks evelyn/athens for an easy to prep, simple to cook and enjoyable taste for a midweek meal :)
