This Frittata dish is filled with spiced ground turkey, zucchini, broccoli, and tomatoes.
A frittata is a great meal-prep breakfast or a good way to use up some leftover vegetables and protein.
Once you have the process down on making the frittata, the filling options are endless and completely customizable to what you like.
How to Make a Frittata
Saute/cook your filling ingredients first. Otherwise if you bake them raw, the moisture will make the eggs less creamy.
You can saute everything in the same pan, but if you are cooking the meat raw, then drain any excess liquid or fat. Then move on to cooking the vegetables.
I used leftover ground turkey taco meat in this recipe, so it was a matter of heating it up with the veggies.
Whisk the eggs right before adding them to the frittata and quickly to incorporate air in them. This helps the frittata to turn out more fluffy.
Using heavy cream or half n half will result in creamier eggs, but since I wanted this to be dairy free, I used almond milk.
Use an oven proof skillet. I love using my cast iron skillet. If you don't have an ovenproof skillet, then you can transfer your filling to a baking dish or even a muffin tin for smaller portions.
Frittatas typically have cheese either baked in or sprinkled on top, but I wanted a dairy free version. Feel free to top with cheese if you like.
Try to not overcook the Frittata, otherwise the eggs will get rubbery.
Can this be made ahead of time?
Yes! Frittatas are great to make on the weekend and have for a quick meal during the week.
I also love to switch it up with either toast for breakfast or with a side salad for lunch. Frittatas are great any meal of the day!
Store leftovers in a airtight container in the refrigerator. To reheat, simple heat in the microwave until hot.
