Turkey, Kale, Onion, & Sundried Tomato Frittata


Well first, doesn’t this frittata look mouth-watering? This is my first ever frittata. I have always been skeptical of making one because I didn’t have the right skillet for it. None of my skillets were oven-safe so frittatas were out of the question until now! We gobbled up this frittata and I loved the ingredients I added to this – kale is SUCH a hearty vegetable to throw into a breakfast item. I really love it (pssst, this is my first time ever cooking with kale – can you believe it??). Wouldn’t you love to make this frittata at home in the same skillet? Of course you would!

A quick and easy frittata to make for breakfast or brunch!

Course: Breakfast
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup sundried tomato halves, sliced
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 2 cups of loosely packed kale leaves, ribs removed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Turn the boiler on in your oven.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the 10 eggs. Set aside.
  3. In an oven-proof skillet or cast iron pan over medium high heat, brown the ground turkey then add in sundried tomatoes and onions. Cook until onions are tender and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Gently add in the kale leaves, little by little. They will wilt down a lot so as soon as one batch wilts down, start adding more.
  5. Once all the kale has wilted, season mixture with salt and pepper then pour the eggs into the pan.
  6. Let it cook for 1-2 minutes before running a spatula along the edge of the eggs & pan. Let cook for 1-2 minutes more, making sure the top of the frittata is still uncooked. Place the entire skillet carefully into the oven and broil for 3-5 minutes, watching it carefully as you don't want the top to burn.
  7. Once the top has cooked through and browned a little, carefully (with oven mitts) remove the pan and let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  8. You can top with cheese, hot sauce, or whatever you wish. Serve warm.

    How do you know if skillet is oven proof?dont. Have a cast iiron skillet.

    • 02/20/2013 at 1:21 pm

      Typically the skillet will say it on the underside.

  21. 02/20/2013 at 1:54 pm

    this sounds SO delicious!

  22. 02/20/2013 at 2:17 pm

    i love frittata but finishing it up in oven is a problem due to skillet like you mentioned. I normally bake it straight and its a lot of work. Loved the addition of kale and sundried tomatoes, what a great idea for brunch :) and liked your pic. Good Luck!!

  24. 02/20/2013 at 3:02 pm

    One – I LOVE this frittata. So full of everything I crave! Second, I liked your pin! good luck ! :D

    I’ve only cooked with kale one time and it was a disaster – I might have to try it again in THIS gorgeous thing!

    Oh mylanta! I love fritattas but sadly my family hates me and they don’t like them. So when I make them I have like, leftovers for a month. But that doesn’t bother me since I’m a glutton, and therefore I am SOOO making this to eat in the month of March! :) LOVE that you used turkey!

  38. 02/21/2013 at 4:34 pm

    Fun dish!! You know what though? You totally need to come up with a new name lol. I went over this with Gina back in the day. Fri ‘ta-ta’ doesn’t work for me. Chandler style giggles.

  39. 02/21/2013 at 4:58 pm

    What kind of sundried tomatoes do you use? I can get them packed in oil or not.
