leek + scallion + herb frittata
yields: 6 servings prep time: 15 minutes bake time: 20 minutes
2 Tbsp. butter
1 leek, halved lengthwise, rinsed and sliced
½ small yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp. minced garlic.
6 large eggs
¼ cup milk
1 tsp. kosher salt
freshly cracked black pepper
2 oz. garlic & herb Boursin cheese, crumbled
¼ cup freshly chopped parsley
¼ cup scallions, diced
Preheat the oven to 400° and prepare a lightly-greased 9-inch glass pie dish.
Heat the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
Add the leeks and onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.
*you are going to want to clean the leeks first! To do this you want to cut the ends off and slice it in half lengthwise. Swish around in water to ensure all of the dirt gets out.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
Mix in the cooked onion, leeks and garlic as well as the parsley and scallions.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie dish and top with the crumbled Boursin cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes.
