Goat cheese 4 Ounce
Chives 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) , chop

2.In a frittata pan, saute the prosciutto and leeks for about 4 minutes over medium heat.

3.Remove prosciutto and leeks from the pan.

11.Before the potatoes get too hot, pour the egg mixture into the pan and spread it out over the potatoes.

12.Take the reserved Parmesan cheese and sprinkle it over the mixture.

13.Cook for two minutes on the stove then cover the pan and move to the oven for 15 minutes.
