As you know by now, I love lemon. Leeks and goat cheese are also right up there on my list too, so when I saw this recipe for a savory frittata, I knew that I would have to give it a try. It was really good, but I generally like bolder flavors. next time I think i would either add a little prosciutto (obviously that wasn’t an option tonight) or use swiss cheese instead to give it a little more of a bite.
