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.
