Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line 6 individual pie tins, large muffin tins or one medium size quiche dish with baking paper.

  1. In a frying pan sauté the leek until soft.
  2. Evenly spread the leek on the base of the tins or quiche dish, then layer the cheese on top. Gently place a layer of spinach on top of the cheese, it will be about two leaves thick in most places.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until light and fluffy then add in the yolks and beat lightly until combined. Finally, add the cream and stock powder and season to taste, combine well.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the leeks, cheese and spinach, taking it right to the top of the dishes where necessary.
  5. Place in the oven and cook for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. In the meantime prepare the smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill. When the frittatas are cooked through, remove them from their tins, place the smoked salmon on top, then the cream cheese and finally the dill to garnish.

Enjoy on a lazy Sunday morning. The perfect rustic breakfast to start the perfect weekend day!
