In large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook potatoes, salt and pepper until tender but firm, 10 to 12 minutes.

Add leeks, mushrooms, red pepper and garlic; cook until tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Add spinach; cook until wilted, about 1 minute.

In bowl, lightly beat eggs; whisk in Cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the Cheez Whiz. Pour over vegetable mixture in skillet; cook until side is set and centre is still slightly runny, about 7 minutes, lifting edge occasionally to allow uncooked eggs to flow underneath.

Drizzle with remaining Cheez Whiz; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Broil until brown and bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from pan and sprinkle with chives.
