Holidays mean many things, and many opportunities. One opportunity is to use all of those leftovers for new, creative, and possibly event tastier meals.
Instead of reheating the same turkey dinner, use your leftovers to make something new that everyone will love. Here is a recipe for Leftover Turkey Frittata from Pasta Fits that you can make with ingredients from your holiday meals, while still eating healthy.
Leftover Turkey Frittata
2 oz. ditalini
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 cup/4 oz. leftover green beans, cut into 1” pieces
1 ½ cups/6 oz. leftover turkey, shredded or cut into bite-sized pieces
1 ½ cups/6 oz. leftover pearl onions
1 ½ cups/8 oz. leftover stuffing
6 large eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the ditalini according to package directions. Drain and reserve.
Heat an 8” or 9” sauté pan over medium heat. Add the butter and coat the bottom of the pan. Strew the green beans, turkey, pearl onions, stuffing, and pasta around the pan. Pour the eggs over.
Cook until just starting to brown along the bottom (about 2 minutes). Transfer to the oven and continue to cook until the eggs are set (about 20 minutes). Allow to cool slightly before cutting into 8 wedges.
Makes 8 servings.
