Easy Frittata Recipe

It doesn’t get much simpler — or tastier — than the classic frittata recipe. Preparation is key — once you have your leeks washed and sliced, your asparagus tips cut into bite-sized pieces, and your eggs broken and thoroughly whisked, there isn’t much more to do than sit back and let it cook. OK, maybe there are a few more steps, but nothing that would deter you from making this frittata a favorite brunch or weeknight supper staple.

Yields 4 generous servings

1 bunch asparagus
1 pound leeks (before tops discarded, about 2 medium)
8 eggs
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 ounces goat cheese

Prepare ingredients: Remove woody ends from asparagus and cut remaining tips into 1- to 2-inch pieces; set aside. Remove tough, fibrous green tops from leeks by cutting at point where leaves begin to branch out and darken in color. Cut remaining stalks in half lengthwise and then thinly slice. Submerge freshly cut leeks in water bath, making sure to agitate enough for all sediment to be washed away. This step is especially important due to the considerable amount of grit leeks hold between their layers. Set aside in separate bowl. Next, crack eggs into large bowl, then add kosher salt, black pepper and dill, and whisk thoroughly; set aside.
