How to solve that Thanksgiving leftover slump: Turkey Frittata Recipe!

Thanksgiving might be over, but those leftovers in your fridge say otherwise. A week has already passed after Thanksgiving, so it’s probably time to mix it up and try something new other than the go-to turkey and stuffing sandwich. So we have the perfect recipe that works for every meal: the turkey frittata! This recipe will revamp those leftovers in your freezer and put the produce that you get at the Pickup this weekend to use.

So checkout this recipe for a turkey frittata; it’s perfect to feed the family:

Servings: 4

Total time: 20 min


1 tablespoon olive oil

½ onion chopped

½ red or green bell pepper, chopped

1 cup boiled potatoes, chopped

½ cup leftover cooked chopped turkey

6 eggs lightly beaten

¼ cup cream

salt and pepper

2 tablespoons chopped parsley, basil, or cilantro

½ cup grated cheddar cheese

What is awesome about the recipe is that you can modify what you put in to work with what is in your fridge. For example, instead of bell peppers you could add broccoli or tomatoes (or use the all!).


Preheat the broiler

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in potatoes and cook until golden brown. Add cooked leftover meat and toss to coat.

In a mixing bowl beat together the eggs and cream and season with salt and pepper.

Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and stir in the chopped herbs. Top with the grated cheese and brown under the broiler for about two to three minutes until the frittata puffs.
