Mushroom, Leek & Goat Cheese Frittata

Servings: 4 to 6 as a main dish, 8 to 12 as an appetizer

The classic combination of creamy fresh goat cheese, woodsy mushrooms and sweet leeks make this frittata a weeknight winner.


  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 medium leeks (white and light green parts only), thinly sliced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tbs. all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled fresh goat cheese
  • 2 Tbs thinly sliced fresh mint


  • In a 10-inch ovenproof anodized aluminum or nonstick skillet, heat 1 Tbs. olive oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and leeks and cook, stirring frequently, until the leeks are tender and the mushrooms are browned. Let the mixture cool slightly (it can be warm when added to the eggs, but not piping hot).

    Heat the oven to 350°F. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the whole milk, flour (don’t worry if the flour forms small lumps), salt, and several grinds of pepper. Combine the mushrooms, leeks, goat cheese, and mint with the egg mixture, folding them in gently.

    Wipe out the skillet, add the remaining 2 Tbs. olive oil, and heat it over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the egg mixture, spreading everything evenly. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the eggs are set about 1 inch in from the sides of the pan, 8 to 12 minutes. Uncover the pan and transfer the frittata to the oven. Bake until the top is puffed and completely set, 15 to 25 minutes more.

    Remove the pan from the oven and run a rubber spatula around the sides of the pan to loosen the frittata. Slip it out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Let the frittata cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    The recipe as written is very good and is one I return to often. I give it less time on the stovetop before putting it in the oven (I like it less browned on the bottom), and I prefer less salt given all the goat cheese. The great thing is that it is also very flexible and is a good way to use up veggies. Today I added some finely sliced kale in addition to the leeks and mushrooms--delicious and hearty.

    A surprisingly easy and tasty recipe (although I made it with asparagus instead of leeks). The method was not what I expected, but it resulted in a delicate and delicious dish. Along with a salad and cheese plate (with roasted grapes), it was a wonderfully fast brunch.
