Potato and Leek Frittata

Potato and Leek Frittata created by magpie diner

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Steam potatoes, covered, for 20-25 minutes, or until tender.
  • Let cool until they can be handled.
  • Peel and cut crosswise into thin slices.
  • 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.
  • Season to taste.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, ½ cup parmesan, ½ cup gruyere, chives, parsley and season to taste.
  • Whisk until combined well.
  • Stir in leek and potatoes.
  • In the cleaned skillet, heat the oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking.
  • 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.
  • Put a plate, larger than the skillet, over the skillet and 'flip' frittata onto it. Gently slilde frittata back into skillet, now browned-side-up and continue cooking until other side has set, about 4 minutes longer.

    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: http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/cooking/ht/howtofrittata.htm.<br/><br/>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 :)

    This had great flavours, but the method didn't work at all for me. I ended up with it being burnt on the bottom and uncooked in the middle. I'd make again only cook in the oven next time. I also found it a lot of potato, but that's probably more personal preference than anything. Thanks for posting Evelyn! Made for Zingo ZWT5.

    Delicious! For dietary reasons I did use egg substitute, low fat swiss cheese (and less of it) and Smart Balance margarine istead of the butter without a problem. I also omitted the oil and the small amount of margaring left in the skillet was enough to crisp the frittata and make sure it did not stick. The potatoe/leek combination was lovely and was set off so well by the cheese, chives and parsley. I halved the recipe without a problem. Thank you Evelyn for sharing this delicious recipe. I'm sure it is scrumptious with the full fat ingredients.
