Thanksgiving Leftovers Frittata

Time certainly flies because it seemed like it was yesterday when the weather was in the 80’s; now we are feeling the chilly breeze that brings in the holiday season. It’s hard to believe I was just posting on the Litehouse blog a few months ago about backyard grilling! Soon our backyard will be covered in snow!

Before we know it Thanksgiving will be here. It is one of my favorite holidays because of the tradition of spending time with family and friends around a large meal (two of my favorite things)! I think this is the only day that our family ever eats turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes and stuffing in the same meal. Everyone looks forward to this big, delicious meal and some even fast beforehand to “make room.” (I’m guilty of that!) The day is filled with food, family and football. The ladies of the family like looking through the ads together for the big black Friday shopping day. You may not be a big black Friday shopper or watch football, but I think the majority of people look forward to the Thanksgiving leftovers. They are almost better the second time around and you don’t have to cook for a week! This Thanksgiving Leftovers Frittata is an amazing way to use those leftovers in something other than a turkey sandwich. I love how frittatas are so versatile and you can basically add any leftovers you have on hand. Once we had a bacon, kale, cornbread and pecan stuffing which would be amazing in this frittata and add extra flavor. You could even add some cranberry sauce or gravy. Although I’m not sure how good those two would taste together! Either of the Litehouse artisan cheeses would be delicious in this recipe, but I used Gorgonzola. I can’t wait to make this for the morning after Thanksgiving! Let me know if you try it and what all leftovers you used!
