Leeky Squash Blossom Frittata

Author Notes: Leeks are the perfect compliment to squash blossoms. I like to make this simple frittata for a late summer supper. Inspired by Julee Rosso's Great Good Food.avimom

Leek mixture

  1. Saute all but the tomatoes briefly in hot olive oil, just until the leeks are golden and translucent. Mix in the tomatoes and remove from heat.
  2. Lightly oil a glass pie dish. Add the leek mixture and spread evenly over the bottom of the dish.

Egg mixture

  1. Beat the eggs well and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the leek mixture in the pie dish.
  2. Arrange the blossom over the top of the eggs and leeks, pushing them down gently into the eggs, but not submerging them. Sprinkle chives over the top.
  3. Bake in 350 degree oven until eggs are set.
