  • 1 pound leeks
  • 1/2 pound red thin-skinned potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg whites
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • About 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded Italian blend cheese or shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (optional)
  • 4 slices (1 oz. each) French bread, toasted


  1. 1. Trim and discard root ends and tough tops from leeks; peel 1 layer off each leek. Cut leeks in half lengthwise and hold each half under cool running water, flipping to remove grit between layers. Thinly slice crosswise (you should have about 3 cups). Scrub potatoes and cut into 1/3-inch chunks.
  2. 2. In a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan (with ovenproof handle), combine leeks, potatoes, olive oil, thyme, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat; cover pan, reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender when pierced, 6 to 8 minutes. If any liquid remains in pan, uncover and simmer, stirring often, until evaporated. Spread vegetable mixture level in pan.
  3. 3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat eggs, egg whites, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1 tablespoon water to blend. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in pan. As edges begin to set, lift with a spatula and tilt pan to let uncooked egg mixture flow underneath. Cook until eggs are firm but still moist on top, 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. 4. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Broil about 6 inches from heat until cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley. Slide frittata onto a plate; cut into wedges. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with toast.
