Author Notes

There's no recipe like frittata that can seamlessly be served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Let me Level with you a bit, I love frittata but most of the time it's served to me, I wish I had a little sauce for it. In this recipe, a quick and easy cherry tomato sauce gets roasted alongside so the frittata slices can literally bathe in the sweet and savoury homemade condiment.

This Frittata gets its flavour inspiration from creamy potato leek soup, a personal fave of mine. It's loaded with spring onions, buttery leeks, creamy potatoes and ooey gooey Emmental cheese. This frittata is a kiss of spring. It's an elegant brunch. It's a casual dinner. —Michelle Rabin

I absolutely LOVE this! The potatoes become creamy to match the cheese and the roasted tomato sauce helps cut through the fat. I cooked the potatoes for 10 minutes in the skillet and then followed the recipe as written. The only thing I would change is to add a few hot pepper flakes.
