Breakfast Frittata

Recently we attended a festive Christmas brunch with lots of our healthy triathlete friends.  I wanted to bake a breakfast treat that is delicious and nutritious for my friends, so I thought of this tried and true frittata recipe.  

1 pound ground turkey, beef or breakfast sausage (your choice)
1 teaspoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 cup fresh, chopped cilantro
non-stick olive oil spray
18 eggs
4 oz. can of diced green chilies, drained
1 zucchini, diced
8-10 mushrooms, diced
1 large baking potato, diced
1 + 1/4 cup colby/jack cheese, shredded
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray skillet with olive oil and add ground turkey, herbs and spices.  Cook until ground turkey is browned, set aside to cool.

Beat all 18 eggs, add green chilies, zucchini, mushrooms and potato.  Whisk together and add colby/jack cheese.  Finally, add the browned ground turkey to the egg mixture.

Spray 9 x 13 glass baking pan with olive oil.  Pour the egg mixture evenly into baking dish and top with a cup of cheddar cheese.  Cover the pan with foil and bake for 1:10.

  1. Love this - so, so yummy! I topped mine with a bit of salsa this time and thought that was pretty fabulous tasting too. Thanks so much for coming to the brunch and sharing this treat with us all!
