This frittata has brunch written all over it. The leeks are quickly broiled and then combined with eggs and fresh dill for an herby taste. Once your cook is complete this frittata is topped with smoked salmon, fresh chives and fried shallots giving you a savory crunch with each bite. We like to imagine this frittata served with a couple mimosas for a Sunday brunch with friends, but it would also be perfect for a holiday morning breakfast.
Note: If you would like to schedule this cook, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, sauté the butter, leeks, and salt together in a medium skillet over medium heat until softened, about 8-10 minutes, instead of broiling.

Spray a Suvie pan with cooking spray. Combine the melted butter, sliced leeks and salt in the Suvie pan.
Broil for 10 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Meanwhile add eggs, half and half, dill, and black pepper to a bowl and whisk to combine.

During the cook, chop the smoked salmon into ½” pieces and store in fridge until end of cook.
Once the cook is complete remove pan from Suvie.
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes or stick in fridge until the eggs have cooled off a bit.
Scatter the smoked salmon over the eggs and top with chopped chives and optional fried shallots.
Loosen edges by running a knife around outside of the pan. Cut into rectangles and serve, enjoy!
