Turkey Day Breakfast

Whether you have a house full or you are just cooking for your family on Thanksgiving preparing the meal can be a 2-day job!

So make it easier for yourself and fix breakfast ahead of time so it can be popped into the oven and served up or reheated when people are ready to eat. 

I make a frittata or two depending on how many I'm feeding. This one-dish meal keeps the mess down in the kitchen and gives everyone something satisfying that will keep them from looking for more to eat. 

It can be as simple as you like or add more ingredients as desired. It can be vegetarian and even dairy free if you use almond or cashew milk and a dairy-free cheese. It can be gluten-free by using a gluten-free bread.

I change up the ingredients all the time depending on what I have in my fridge. I rarely go buy stuff to make this dish. Once you have a basic recipe you can change it around to suit the wants of your family.

Here is my recipe;

Southwestern frittata

preheat oven *350, makes 4-6 servings, cook time 40-60 mins

cast iron or oven safe skillet 

3/4 lb mild Italian turkey sausage

1/2 loaf of stale sourdough, french or a rosemary flavored bread

6 eggs

2 c milk

1-2 c grated pepper jack cheese

6 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

1 sm onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 green pepper, diced

4-6 portabella or shiitake mushrooms, sliced

2 lg handfuls of fresh spinach or kale, chopped

1/2 tsp powdered mustard or prepared, whichever you have

1/2 tsp onion and garlic powder, if you have it

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 c fresh tomato salsa for garnish

Using a cast iron skillet or an oven-safe skillet cook and drain sausage, transfer to a paper towel, cook veggies until slightly tender then remove from skillet.

In a separate dish beat eggs, milk, mustard, onion and garlic powder, and s&p then add remaining cheese.  

Spray skillet bottom and sides with olive or coconut oil. Tear bread into large bite-size pieces and place on the bottom of the skillet. sprinkle 1/2 the cheese on top of the bread then add the sausage and veggies. Pour egg mixture over everything. 

Bake when ready to eat. If you've had it in the refrigerator let it set out to get close to room temperature before putting into a hot oven.

This is also ok to reheat, just wrap in foil place in the oven or toaster oven on 350* for 5-10 mins or until warm through.  

Make this up to 24 hours ahead of time Just keep it covered in the fridge until it's ready to bake. It's really fast and easy! 

Make it for dinner it's a delicious meal any day of the week.
