Good breakfast recipe, but a tad bland (like another reviewer mentioned, a tad bit more salt and maybe a dash of red pepper could fix that right up! Or like another reviewer, add some diced ham!) I planned ahead to make this recipe for Sunday morning breakfast so on Friday night, I made a recipe with cubed boiled red potatoes making 2 cups extra and reserving in a tupperware container in the fridge till I was ready to make this dish. I used one whole bunch of fresh spinach, and only leek (they are quite large!), but otherwise followed the recipe as stated. Next time I will make the dish, I would recommend cutting down on the amount of potatoes (maybe only a 1 1/2 cup) and adding some diced ham - super easy to make and looks very pretty. Wouldn't hesitate to serve as a main dish for a brunch and it's very filling; enjoy!
Frittata with Spinach, Potatoes, and Leeks
Make the leek mixture and cook the potatoes a day ahead. Or use store-bought diced cooked potatoes (such as Simply Potatoes), whisk the eggs, combine everything, and bake the morning of the brunch.
