  1. Slice the sprouts and leeks into similar-size pieces so they fry evenly.

    Next time, follow the whole recipe, then whisk 3 large free-range eggs with 50ml double cream in a bowl. Season the mixture, then pour over the sprouts in the pan. Cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat, then grill until the egg has set into a frittata. Slice to serve.
