Active: 40 min Total: 40 min
The savory flavor of leeks sauteed in butter in this frittata are a great match for the natural sweetness of the pears in the side salad.

We really liked this, but we also added hollandaise sauce. Salad was a great pairing.

Definitely struggled with the poached eggs this time - I think the pan was too shallow- so I switched to over easy. So simple and delicious, perfect for a Sunday night breakfast for dinner.

Amazing!! My husband was super sceptical, and then gave me a high 5 at the end because it was so good. I used arugula because Cooksmarts has given me an arugula addiction.

I've never poached eggs, but it was so easy! The salad was a surprise too. The sweetness of the pears really complimented the saltiness of the eggs and bacon. Will make this again

We loved it. Super quick, easy and flavorful. Our Trader Joe’s must have had big leeks, though, because one was for sure enough. But we will be making this again, especially for a weekend breakfast or brunch.
