This spinach leek potato frittata will make you a Mother's Day hero. And it's so easy to make, too!
Brunch season is in full swing, and I’m already excited to get together and cook with my family for Mother’s Day. I’m lucky to live near everyone in my immediate family, so we make a point of going all out for holidays. We always ends up making far more food than necessary so that everyone leaves pleasantly stuffed with leftovers in hand.
While we’re all about baking up cinnamon rolls and flipping pancakes for family gatherings, we’re always sure to include some sort of vegetable-infused egg concoction. Enter: the spinach, leek, and potato frittata.
If you’re unfamiliar with leeks, don’t be scared! All you do is slice them in half length-wise and chop. You can use leeks the same way you would use yellow onion, except they require far less time to sauté and also have a milder, almost creamy, flavor. I love the combination of spinach, leek, and potato in this frittata, as it’s full of flavor and is filling, yet still nutritious!
This jam packed veggie frittata doesn’t require much time or effort. Simply sauté the vegetables in a cast iron skillet (or oven-safe pan), pour in your beaten eggs, and bake for 20 minutes. From start to finish, this recipe takes less than an hour and it can be made in advance and reheated for guests. A healthful brunch that’s a cinch to make? Double whammy!
When it comes to frittatas, I love adding seasoning to the egg mixture in order to infuse the dish with flavor. I used Dreamfarm’s nifty Levoons in order to measure out my seasoning. For those who bake, the Levoons are a marvelous tool to have on hand, as they come with a small arm that levels out the ingredient and ensures accuracy. Just how cute are these little measuring devices?
Although I kept this frittata cheeseless, you can add one cup of your favorite grated cheese, such as cheddar, jack, gruyere, etc. To do so, simply whisk the grated cheese into the eggs before pouring it into the skillet. You can also add various seasonings depending on your taste - gotta love frittatas for their versatility.
Whether or not you have plans for Mother’s Day brunch, this recipe makes a delicious and healthful meal any time of year!
