Thanksgiving Leftovers In A Frittata

by Caterina Borg, Good Food Gourmet on November 27, 2014

Thanksgiving Frittata, www.goodfoodgourmet.comThe morning after Thanksgiving will probably have you  enjoying your first meal around lunch time. It will mark the beginning of many leftover meals – those that require a little creativity to keep everyone interested for the next few days. Today I was dreaming of making a frittata, with crispy shredded potatoes for the base, eggs, whatever vegetables I had leftover along with some diced, seeded tomatoes to freshen it up a little AND I was going to top the whole thing off with some leftover stuffing. I was going to do this all in a skillet that I would put into the oven once everything was put together  to crisp up that stuffing on the top.

What a delicious idea this was…

The stuffing on top of the frittata was the perfect accompaniment. The sweet sausage, apples and currants combined so well with the eggs and leftover veggies. This cooks up beautifully as a layered dish, but if you don’t want to take the extra time, toss everything together as a hash and fry it up.  It may not be as pretty, but it’s just as delicious. You will find yourself wishing for Thanksgiving leftovers every day.

Thanksgiving Frittata
I large potato, shredded
4 eggs
1 large seeded and diced tomato
1/4 cup vegetable oil
leftover vegetables (corn, green beans, mushrooms, etc)
2-3 cups leftover stuffing
Oven proof skillet

Peel and shred the large potato, then seed and dice your tomato and set aside. Add half the oil to a medium sized skillet and heat well. Add the potato and cook well until it is translucent, then remove.

Add the other half of the oil and then add back the potato, but this time spread it all out the potatoes to cover the bottom of your skillet.

Place the whole frying pan into a preheated 400°F oven until the stuffing takes on some color and crisps up slightly, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before slicing.
