Cheesy Leftover Turkey Frittata Recipe

Leftovers are the BEST part of the Thanksgiving meal.

That’s right, I said it. Everyone debates whether the sides, the turkey, or the dessert is the best part of the Thanksgiving meal, but for me it’s none of the above. The best part of the Thanksgiving meal is the leftovers. I LOVE having a turkey and stuffing sandwich the next day, but I also love all the creative things you can do with Thanksgiving leftovers.

This year I did something a little different. I created a cheesy leftover turkey Frittata. I love this recipe because it uses the turkey, but can also use other items you have in your fridge both from before and after the big day.

One of my main ingredients for this frittata is Borden® Cheese. I used shredded mozzarella cheese for this recipe, but I could also see making it with Borden’s shredded cheddar (mmmmm, I think I’ll that next).

I really like using Borden Cheese in my cooking, not just because it is delicious, but because they’re brought to you by a cooperative of more than 8,000 family-owned dairy farms across the United States. I really trust the brand.

Okay, here’s my recipe for Leftover Turkey Frittata!
