How to Make Leftover Turkey and Vegetable Frittata

Even though Thanksgiving is going to be on a smaller scale this year, I’m still planning to cook up a storm so there are plenty of leftovers. I love combining leftovers to create an entirely new dish. Eggs are like pasta in my mind in that you can basically add anything you want to them. Here I combined roasted butternut and spinach with the turkey. Since everything is already cooked, it takes just a few minutes to warm up in the skillet before adding the egg mixture. Be sure to use an ovenproof skillet because the frittata will finish under the broiler.

You can toss in whatever veggies you have on hand. The possibilities are endless! I added shredded fontina to the eggs but you can use any easy melting cheese you like.

TIP: The key to achieving the perfect consistency is to constantly stir the mixture over medium heat so the eggs cook to the soft-scrambled stage before popping under the broiler.

It takes just 2-3 minutes for the eggs to finish cooking and the top layer of cheese to be melted and bubbly. Spooning over this Blood Orange Cranberry Sauce was such a delicious accompaniment.

So whether you’re doing some kind of a smaller version of your normal Thanksgiving or not, planning and sharing a fabulous meal doesn’t have to hinge on crowd size.😉 xx, Kim

  1. What a splendid frittata, Kim! You’re so right that you can easily customize a frittata, but honestly you’ve created a pretty perfect combo. Turkey, squash, cheese, rosemary – I don’t think I’d like to alter anything. And yes, this blood orange cranberry sauce sounds amazing, too!
