Leftover Turkey Frittata with Spinach and Mozzarella @diethood

Ladies and Gents, I am dealing with a food hangover.

You know how I told you I lost 30 pounds since giving birth to Aleksandra 6 months ago? I think it all came back last night. I ate like a cow. At one point I took a two-hour break from eating, then I went back at it again; a full plate for the second time.

I am too scared to get on that scale today. That’s why I’m not going anywhere near it until after January. The Holidays are upon us and I don’t have any available days left for diets in my calendar.

Tonight we are going to have this lighter-on-the-belly Leftover-Turkey Frittata for dinner. It’s packed with leftover turkey and I added fresh spinach to it… it’s the only healthy thing in my fridge. This frittata goes really good with a nice dollop of sour cream or some plain thick yogurt. Also, please don’t add too much salt to this. Your turkey was salted enough, I am sure, thus adding more salt to the eggs might result in a very salty experience.

I’m also thinking about pouring some of that delicious cranberry maple syrup over vanilla ice cream for dessert… Yeah, I think I’ll do that for sure. I’ll try to limit myself to a scoop.

    I couldn’t agree more The Mom Chef. This would be a great way to eat up the rest of you thanks giving day left overs. I would have to run on the treadmill for 2 hours to burn this beautiful dish off. πŸ™‚

  2. EA-The Spicy RD

    I love, love, love a good fritatta & this one with turkey, spinach & mozzarella sound delicious! Too bad I don’t have any leftover turkey to make it πŸ™

  5. Jean (Lemons & Anchovies)

    We definitely were on the same wavelength–making a frittata with leftovers. I snuck in some greens, too, (shaved brussels sprouts) to balance things out.

    Love your version, Kate. Looks wonderful!

    Food hangover is right! All I want to eat now is salads, turkey soup and this frittata. It looks wonderful.

  10. jenbeans

    A nice idea for a lighter dinner…. some gravy on that frittata would be yummy too! And a lighter dinner most definitely needs to be counteracted with ice cream + syrup πŸ™‚

    Food hangover! LOL. I totally have one of those too and I’m not planning on going light tonight either. πŸ˜‰ This looks delicious. Great use of leftovers!

    Happy day after Thanksgiving! I was actually pretty good and limited my lunch to a single, normal plate. I did have pumpkin pie for breakfast though. πŸ™‚

    Your frittata looks fantastic and is a great idea for the leftovers (which we have in copious amounts!).
