Potato, Leek, Goat Cheese Frittata

Tuesday, 1 April 2014


There are a few things that my husband really doesn't like and one of them is goat cheese. So when he is not home for dinner for whatever reason I like to take that opportunity to make dishes that he wouldn't necessarily like but I love! One of those dishes is this:

Potato, Leek, Goat Cheese Frittata

Ingredients 
  • 1 tablespoons butter/margarine
  • 2 leeks, white and light green part only, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives 
  • 1 large red potato, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch pieces 
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 8 eggs
Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 450F on broil setting
  2. Place potato in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through
  3. Melt butter in a 12-inch oven proof frying pan over medium heat. Add leeks and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until leeks are soft
  4. Push leeks to the side of the pan and add potatoes, browning them for 2-3 minutes. Then stir the potatoes and leeks together
  5. Meanwhile, in a bowl whisk eggs together and add chopped chives, pour over leek and potato mixture and gently stir to combine
  6. Crumble goat cheese on top and use spatula to press into egg, leek, potato mixture 
  7. Once the frittata has set up around the outside and there is a just a little bit of jiggle in the centre, transfer to the oven and broil for 3-5 minutes or until the frittata is completely cooked through.
