Leeks

Another bunch of leeks made its way from Neighbour Gnome's to our place. Freshly pulled, slender, tender, lovely.

I made leeky left-over frittata with them.There was some leftover bacon floating in the fridge. Chop it and throw it in the pan to brown. Slice and wash leeks and add to pan. Add some of the left-over chicken stock. Slice some left-over capsicum and add. Cover with a lid and let it all bubble till the leeks are tender. Add your left-over egg yolks (Mama Gnome was busy baking yesterday and had used mostly egg whites) mixed with just a little milk. (You could actually leave out the eggs.) Dot with some left-over feta cubes. Then slide the pan into a preheated oven and bake till the egg is set. Then sprinkle some grated parmesan over it and put back in the oven till that is melted and browned.

It made a great side dish - together with steamed carrots with chives and baked rosemary potatoes - for our pan-fried salmon tail. Life is good!

Frittata is a big favourite in this place once a week and the only limit to the ingredients is the imagination.
Yours looks so yummy I think I can smell the aroma all the way up here.
