This savory-spicy frittata is delicious served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!
½ pound chorizo sausage
½ cup chopped leeks, white and light green parts only
½ cup chopped green onions
2 cups hearty greens, such as kale, washed, greens removed of any tough ribs and roughly chopped
2 cups cherry tomatoes
½ cup milk
1 cup crumbled cotija or queso fresco cheese
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 375º.
2. Cook the chorizo sausage in a large ovenproof skillet until done, breaking the sausage into small chunks with a wooden spoon. Then, add the leeks and green onions and cook, stirring constantly, for an additional 2-3 minute, until both are softened and fragrant. Add in the cherry tomatoes and greens and cook until the greens are just wilted, then remove from the heat.
3. Crack eggs and break over a shallow bowl. Break yolks with a whisk or fork, then whisk together with the milk and ½ cup of the cheese, seasoning generously with salt and pepper. Add eggs to the frying pan and mix with the chorizo and vegetables.
4. Top the frittata with the remaining ½ cup cheese and then bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm.

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 baby leeks, thinly sliced (white and pale green parts only)
8 large eggs
3 tablespoons minced dill
3 tablespoons minced chives
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
4 ounces smoked salmon, flaked
Pinch each of sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Preheat the broiler. Melt the olive oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add the leeks and sauté, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, herbs, salt, pepper, goat cheese and salmon. Pour the mixture over the leeks and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan and cook until the edges are set but the center is still runny, about 4 minutes. Place the pan under the preheated broiler and cook until the frittata is puffed up and golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
