Leek, Bacon and Feta Frittata

Leek Bacon and Feta Frittata

I love concocting meals from leftovers, it gives me a real sense of satisfaction that I'm not wasting perfectly good food. This frittata was one such creation, using a couple of leftover leeks, a few rashers of bacon, some reduced feta (£2.99 reduced to 30p - I love a good bargain) and the remains of some fresh mint. It ended up being a tasty Saturday night dinner for hubby and I, while we watched the footie on the box.

Ingredients: serves 4 with a side salad
2 large leeks, washed, trimmed, cut in half then sliced into half moons
25g Butter
3 Rashers of Smoked Bacon, chopped
180g Feta, crumbled
Handful of mint leaves, torn
6 eggs, beaten and seasoned

Step 1: In a medium frying pan, melt the butter then add the leeks and fry until soft. Turn the heat up, add the bacon until cooked.
Step 2: Pour in the eggs, add the feta and mint and give it a good stir. Cook on the heat for around 8 minutes until the top is almost set. Preheat the grill.
Step 3: Transfer to the grill and grill until nicely browned.
Step 4: Transfer to a serving plate and cut into wedges.
