This frittata is inspired by Smoky bacon and leek Quiché, we didn’t have the time for pastry, so frittata it became. It was absolutely delicious. I’d say this is Best served fresh from the oven on a warm Spring / Summer’s evening with a fresh crisp salad and a spoon of potato salad. It is a one pan meal that doesn’t leave a lot of washing up or mess.

It’s possible to swap out leeks for almost any other vegetables with a frittata, and it still is awesome.
