Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
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.

Add Italian seasoning and saute for 1 minute more.

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.0 Helpful
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!0 Helpful
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.0 Helpful
