What to do with leftover turkey! I made a frittata for breakfast – the boys loved it! Unfortunately I still have about 2 containers worth of turkey left… eep! I’ll have to cook some more turkey things. The frittata is really easy to make. It’s basically a fancy baked omelet.
1 cup of cubed turkey meat
1/4 cup of leftover stuffing
3 tablespoons of whole milk
4 tablespoons of leftover gravy
1/3 cup of cheddar cheese
1/3 cup of diced onions
2 tablespoons of butter
preheat oven to 390°F or 200°C
Step 1: The onion
In a oven proof pan or cast iron skillet (I highly suggest cast iron skillet, both for cooking quality and for taste), melt the butter all around the pan. Throw on the chopped onions and let them sweat – till they’re a little see through.
Step 2: The mix
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until a little fluffy. Now mix in the chopped turkey chunks and fold it until well mixed. Now mix in the stuffing. Then the cheese. Once this is ready, scoop off the onions that have been sweating on the pan and fold that into the mixture. Pour this whole thing on the skillet. Spoon on some dollops of gravy – straight from the fridge is perfect. And let that cook on medium-low heat for about 8 minutes – timing isn’t that important on the stove, it’s just to start the cooking before you pop it in the oven.
Step 3: The baking
So about 8 to 10 minutes later, toss the skillet in the oven on the top shelf and let that bake for 30 – 35 minutes. You want it golden brown on top. The gravy should be melty on top and the edges should look a little dark brown and crusty.
