Turkey, Spinach, and Tomato Frittata

Thursday, February 3, 2011

This is such an easy breakfast/brunch to make.  Great for weekend company!

Turkey, Spinach, and Tomato Frittata
Eggs (depends on how many people you are having)
Fresh spinach
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
Creamy cheese (I used Muenster)
3-4 slices of deli turkey

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Whisk the eggs together.  Chop up a handful of fresh spinach and put it in with the eggs.  Heat some olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Chop up 3-4 slices of turkey and add it to the eggs.  Drain the tomatoes and add about 1/2 of the can.  Work your way around the egg mixture and as it starts to harden pull it up and let more egg juice flow beneath.  When the mixture is semi-hardened, add the cheese on top.  Bake in oven for about 20 minutes until eggs set and cheese melts.
For this meal, I used 5 eggs and 2 egg whites

Here's what you'll need:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the eggs

Chop up some spinach and throw it in with the whisked eggs

Chop up 3-4 slices of turkey

Put the eggs and spinach mixture into an oiled pan.  Add the sliced turkey

Drain a can of diced tomatoes and add about half to the eggs.

As the eggs start to cook, take a spatula around the outside edge of the pan to let more juice drain down. 

When the eggs have set, place your cheese over the whole thing.  (This is a 12 inch pan)

Pop in to the oven for about 15-20 minutes

Here's what you'll end up with:

Our Thoughts:
I LOVE frittatas or so my kids would eat it . . . breakfast pizza.  I told them that the eggs made the crust.  It worked!

You can take this recipe and change it up anyway you want.  I have used turkey sausage, turkey bacon, feta cheese, onions, green peppers, jalapenos, etc. etc.  The list goes on and on.  I make these all of the time!  You really cannot mess this dish up.  Anything you like, throw it in.

Hope you enjoy!
