Author: Canadian Living

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 mini red potatoes halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 cup sliced leek (white and light green parts only)
  • 1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup packed trimmed fresh spinach julienned
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded old Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Cheez Whiz melted
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chive

Method

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.
