What to do with your left over Turkey and Stuffing?

Nov 25, 2011 No Comments by

It’s the morning of black Friday and you open up the fridge and say shit I still have turkey and stuffing left over what do I do with it! Don’t worry the Food Father is here to the rescue .

I like making a turkey and stuffing frittata or aka omelet

The frittata can be eaten either hot or cold. Cut into thin wedges a frittata makes an excellent appetizer.

Turkey and Stuffing Frittata
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
  • Eggs, generally 2-3 or 4 egg whites
  • tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon of leftover turkey
  • 2 tablespoon of leftover stuffing
  1. Prepare the filler, usually by sautéing it, and have it ready in the skillet.
  2. Lightly beat the eggs to incorporate some air into them, which will make for a fluffier frittata.
  3. Pour the eggs into the skillet, give the skillet a brisk shake to distribute them evenly though the filler, and let the frittata cook, without stirring, till the top begins to firm up.
    Cover the skillet with a lid that doesn't have a lip and flip it upside-down while holding the lid pressed to it (you may want to do this over a sink the first time).
  4. The frittata will come to rest on the lid; turn the skillet right-side up, slide the frittata back into it, and cook it for a couple of minutes more to set it through. It shouldn't be runny, nor should it be bone dry.
  5. As a variation in technique,
  6. if your skillet has heatproof handles you can slip it into the broiler for a few minutes once the top begins to set. Also don't be afraid to use some fresh goat cheese it on it.
