What’s eggy and veggie and delicious all over? This Turkey Kale Frittata! Simple and easy to whip up and bake, this dish will serve you well as a make ahead breakfast or the centerpiece of a brunch party. It’s also a perfect way to use up the leftovers of your Thanksgiving turkey…
This delectable dish is completely grain free and easily made dairy free. I like to use goat cheese since I’m cutting back on cow’s dairy, but Daiya also works well, or you can just focus on the meat and veggies.
If you enjoyed my Veggie Feta Frittata, you’ll love this rendition. It’s packed with protein and healthy fats to kick-start your day or to pair with a sweet potato or some plantains for a breakfast-for-dinner delight. Want some crust after all? Try the cornmeal crust featured with my Broccoli Cheddar Quiche, or keep it grain free with a quinoa crust by using the recipe in my Smoked Salmon & Quinoa Quiche.
Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday, but even I sometimes tire of the same old turkey and cranberry sauce leftovers, so Friday morning will see me whipping up this dish for a breakfast treat.

This looks delicious! I’ve been meaning to go back to my egg-based breakfast for a while, but I’ve been dreading the work involved. But a make ahead breakfast…?!? Genius – thanks for reminding me!
Have a great day! 🙂
My sister and I celebrate “frittata Friday” and we love Turkey and goat cheese! She’ll love this!
Yummy! 😀 I haven’t made a frittata in almost a year! That looks all sorts of delicious! ❤ I happen to have some goat cheese that needs to be used up too!
I eat them all the time now. So easy to make ahead for a work week!
This looks delicious! I love eggs but never have had a frittata but definitely need to! I love egg and cheese wraps which I definitely eat several times a week!!
I love a frittata! Especially not that it’s colder – they’re a perfect warming breakfast!
Yes! Since I can’t go for my oatmeal bakes as usual so much (still limiting the grains over here…) frittata slices are still awesome choices for a hot meal.
