Broccoli Leek & Tomato Fritata (baked not fried)

I have never been fond of frying anything as for me it's always too greasy, so I like to bake or broil when I can, hence a baked fritata is just as good as a fried one, if not better ~ and definitely better for your health!

Time: +/- 45 minutes
Effort: Easy
Serves 2-4

Ingredients
4 eggs well beaten
2 cups broccoli flowerettes, steamed until tender but crisp
2 medium leeks, diced and steamed until tender
1/2 medium ripe tomato, sliced and quartered
1/4 cup shredded cheese (such as Gruyere or Parmesan)
Salt & pepper to taste
Olive oil for spraying or brushing

Method
Heat oven to 400oF. Spray or brush a deep baking dish with olive oil coating the sides, but don't use too much!

Arrange the broccoli and leeks on the bottom of the dish, pour in the beaten eggs, sprinkle with cheese and then arrange the tomatoes over the top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until the egg is cooked and the top is nicely browned.

Serve hot or cold, alone with a salad or with your favorite meat/fish recipe!

Bon Appetit!
