Herb and Leek Frittata for #SundaySupper

Hi friends! This week the Sunday Supper Movement is celebrating Easy Spring recipes and I’m excited to share my Herb and Leek Frittata with you! A frittata is a thick omelet, cooked on the stovetop and then finished in the oven, often under the broiler to lightly brown the top and make it puffy and delicious. The main differences between a frittata and a quiche are that a frittata doesn’t have a crust and usually doesn’t contain any milk or cream in the recipe. So, if you love quiches, but not all the calories, this frittata is for you!

Do yourself a favor and take advantage of the delicious fresh herbs and vegetables coming into season right now. This frittata is filled with thyme, basil, parsley, hearty slices of leeks and asparagus and some mushrooms thrown in for their meaty goodness. You can enjoy this dish as breakfast or brunch or even serve it as a light dinner with a nice side salad!

One thing you should know about Leeks, is they can be very dirty. Make sure they are well rinsed before you slice them. If you’re not sure, go back and rinse them one more time. Better safe, than a mouthful of grit later.

This recipe is scaled down so it’s perfect for two people. I love it for breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit and hot coffee! The melty cheese on top doesn’t hurt either.
