Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Heat a 10.5” to 12” (26 cm to 30 cm) oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. (Note: skillet size is for 4 servings. If customizing, use a larger or smaller skillet, or you can transfer the cooked filling to a muffin tin and top it with the egg mixture before baking.) Add butter and then leeks with a pinch of salt. Saute until soft, ~5 minutes.

  3. Add tomatoes and corn and saute until most of the moisture from the tomatoes has cooked off, 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. Add Italian seasoning and saute for 1 minute more.

  5. Pour eggs over vegetables and stir to combine ingredients. Crumble goat cheese over top of frittata.

  6. Bake frittata until set in the middle, 15 to 20 minutes.

  7. Toss lettuce, plums, and sunflower seeds with vinaigrette until dressed to your liking.

  8. Slice frittata. Serve with yogurt on top and salad on the side. Enjoy!

All the goat cheese! Was really light and refreshing but filling enough for dinner. Can never buy just 1 leek, so made a second frittata for the freezer.

Weekend meal prep made this super easy. Someone else mentioned parchment paper in a casserole dish and I don't think I'll ever do it differently - clean up was a breeze!

Followed the suggestion to use parchment and Pyrex. Worked like a charm. Salad was okay, but I didn’t have any seeds on had. Figured the crunch would have helped.
