Leek, Mushroom and Cheese Frittata

Leek, Mushroom and Cheese Frittata (from Foodland Ontario)

This versatile light supper, lunch or brunch frittata is easy to make and ultra-flavourful with its garlic-and-herb cream cheese. Serve with crusty multigrain bread and sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.
Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
Servings: 4


1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
2 cups (500 mL) sliced halved well-washed Ontario Leeks (2 to 3)
2 cups (500 mL) sliced Ontario Mushrooms (about 4 oz/125 g)
1 pkg (113 g) cream cheese with garlic and herbs
6 eggs
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of salt and pepper


In large ovenproof nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add leeks and mushrooms; cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until softened.

In bowl, beat cream cheese to soften. Whisk in eggs, 1 at a time, until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into skillet and stir gently with wooden spoon to combine. Cover and reduce heat to low; cook until set and lightly puffed, 8 to 10 minutes. Broil until lightly golden, about 2 minutes.

Tip: To broiler proof your skillet, wrap handle in foil.
