Easy Vegetable Frittata with Ground Turkey

Well first, doesn’t this turkey and vegetable frittata look mouth-watering? This is my first ever homemade 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 (literally) off the table until now!

What’s In a Breakfast Frittata?

I loved the ingredients I added to this egg frittata. Kale is SUCH a hearty vegetable to throw into a breakfast recipe. 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 vegetable frittata at home in the same skillet? Of course you would! All you need is:

  • Eggs
  • Ground turkey
  • Sun-dried Tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Kale

  • 10 large eggs
  • ½ pound (227 g) ground turkey
  • ¾ cup (83 g) sundried tomato halves, sliced
  • ½ large onion, diced
  • 2 cups (134 g) of loosely packed kale leaves, ribs removed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Turn the boiler on in your oven.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the 10 eggs. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Once all the kale has wilted, season mixture with salt and pepper then pour the eggs into the pan.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You can top with cheese, hot sauce, or whatever you wish. Serve warm.

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