Ingredients

4 potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch (1/2 cm) thick
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
1 leek, thinly sliced
5 oz (150 g) baby arugula
6 eggs
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh chives, chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
6 oz (180 g) COWS CREAMERY Applewood Appletree Smoked Cheddar, shredded

Preparation

In a saucepan, cook potatoes for 5 minutes in boiling water, then drain.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and brown potatoes and leek for 5 minutes. Add arugula, stir and cook for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, beat eggs with chives, salt and pepper. Add Smoked Cheddar cheese and pour into skillet. Stir until cheese is evenly combined with the potatoes. Lower heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover skillet with a plate, then invert so the tortilla drops onto the plate. Be careful, as the eggs are not yet completely cooked. Slide tortilla back into skillet to cook the other side for 5–7 minutes more or until potatoes are tender.

Serve hot or cold.

Tips

The tortilla can be made ahead of time, then reheated in the oven at 375 °F (190 °C) for about 20 minutes.
