  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
  • 2 cups (500 mL) sliced halved well-washed Ontario Leeks (2) (white part only)
  • 2 cups (500 mL) sliced Ontario Mushrooms (about 4 oz/125 g)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) cream cheese with garlic and herbs
  • 6 Ontario Eggs
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper


In 10-inch (25 cm) ovenproof non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add leeks and mushrooms; cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until softened.

In medium bowl, beat cream cheese to soften. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into skillet and stir gently with wooden spoon to combine with leeks and mushrooms.

Cover and reduce heat to low; cook until set and lightly puffed, 8 to 10 minutes.

Adjust oven rack 4-inches (10 cm) below broiler element; turn on broiler. Broil until lightly golden, about 2 minutes.
