Leek & Bacon Fritatta 

I rustled this up last Sunday, basically using up all the leftovers i had in.

Leeks are in season at the moment and i love them, so i have been chucking them in everything.

This dish makes for a great brunch, it takes around 20 minutes from start to finish.

It was so yummy and even my little legs tucked in, giving the big thumbs up!

To save time i used frozen diced onion and garlic it’s always handy to have a back up – if i run out of the fresh option.

  • 4 rashes of bacon.
  • 100g frozen peas

  • Grill the bacon for 5 minutes on a medium heat.
  • To a bowl crack the eggs in, add the milk, salt and pepper and chilli flakes.
  • Remove the bacon from the grill, and add to the leeks and onion.
  • Add the peas also.
  • Line a frying pan with greaseproof paper. (I used tinfoil, as my little rascal has used all mine up, tracing cars).
  • Add the leek, onion and bacon, and then pour the egg over.
  • Fry on a medium head for 7 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the cheese over, and then grill for 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove from grill, and greaseproof paper.

I added a crisp side salad, and some mustard. But i feel it would also be perfect with some beans! YUM.

Do you think you may try?

(If you are veggie, ditch the bacon and add some mushrooms).
