  1. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, beat together the eggs, milk, cheese and mixed herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Preheat the grill to high. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the bacon and leek for 4-5 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. Stir in the potato and heat through.
  4. Pour in the beaten egg mixture, making sure all the other ingredients are covered. Stir the egg mixture to break it up a little as it begins to cook. Cook for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat, or until the edge of the frittata begins to set.
  5. Place the frittata pan under the grill for 4-5 minutes, or until the egg is cooked and the top is golden. Serve immediately.
