Fall Vegetable Frittata with Duck Eggs

Packed with fingerling potatoes, sweet peppers and Grana-style cheese, this easy frittata boasts incredibly fresh flavor.

Ingredients:
6 duck eggs
1 pint fingerling potatoes, washed and thinly-sliced
2 sweet peppers, washed, seeded and chopped
2 leeks, trimmed and thinly-sliced
1 cup spinach leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
1 clove garlic
½ cup grated Grana-style cheese
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 375°.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced potatoes to the skillet and sauté for about 6 to 8 minutes, until tender but firm. Remove from the skillet. Add another tablespoon of oil, then add the peppers, leeks, spinach and garlic. Sauté for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the greens are just wilted. Season vegetables with salt and pepper. Remove from the skillet.

3. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs, cheese and thyme with a pinch of salt and pepper. Return the potatoes to the skillet, arranging in an even layer. Top with vegetable mixture and then pour eggs evenly over the vegetables. Drizzle olive oil around the edge of the pan to ensure easy removal.

4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the eggs have completely set in the center. Serve straight out of the skillet, cut into wedges, or flip onto a serving plate.
