80(ish)--- Leftover Frittata

I hope you still have Thanksgiving leftovers.  If you were shopping ALL DAY yesterday like I was this may be your first chance to dive into them!
Leftover frittatas are not just limited to holiday dinners! Any meal leftovers can be made into a frittata.  Spaghetti? Sure.  Rice and beans? Why not? Chocolate chip pancakes? Maaaayyyybe not. But possibly worth a try.

I am not posting nutrition info, as it will vary quite a bit by what your dinner entailed. 
Leftover Frittata
Serves 6

6 egg whites
2 whole eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
4-5 oz turkey, chopped
1/2 cup green bean casserole (or other vegetable)
1/2 cup stuffing (dressing)
1/2 cup yams, chopped (use same method as stuffing if using mashed)
3/4 cup mashed potatoes, chilled
2 Tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll 2-3 Tbsp mashed potatoes into balls, then place onto a plate and flatten into a disc.  Repeat with remaining potatoes.  Set aside.

Whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, paprika and pepper.  Gently fold in turkey, green beans, and yams.

In an oven-safe 10" skillet over medium heat, melt butter.  Place potato discs into pan, creating a "bottom" for your frittata (discs do not need to touch). 

Spread some of the melted butter from the bottom of the pan around the inside edge and pour egg mixture into pan, evenly distributing ingredients.  Place 1 Tbsp dollops of stuffing throughout egg mixture, lightly pushing them down into liquid.  Continue to heat over medium heat until bubbly, ~ 5 minutes.

Transfer skillet to oven and continue to cook for ~20 minutes, or until eggs are done completely and edges of frittata are slightly pulling away from pan.  Remove from oven and allow to cool ~2 minutes.

Frittata should gently slide onto a serving plate.  If not, place a plate upside down onto skillet.  Gently flip over (skillet will be hot).  Repeat process with serving plate.

Cut into slices and enjoy!
