Turkey, Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Frittata

Preparation Time: 20 minutes   Cooking Time: 30 minutes

recipe by What’s Cooking/Mymagazine, modified by eatlivefit.net

Ingredients:

6 large eggs

1 tsp. + 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided

Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 1/2 cups cooked turkey, chopped

4 oz. crumbled goat cheese (I used 2 oz as a sprinkle)

Directions:

Preheat broiler, in small bowl whisk together the eggs, 1 tsp olive oil and salt and pepper.  In ovenproof skillet (i.e. a medium cast iron skillet) heat 1 Tbsp Olive Oil over medium heat on burner.  Add the bell pepper and cook until tender, 5-8 min approx.  Toss in cooked turkey and rewarm for 1 minute or so.  Turn burner down to low-medium heat; add egg mixture to skillet and cook until eggs are set on the bottom (approx. 5 minutes).  Using spatula, lift the cooked egg so that some of the liquid in the center runs to the edges of the pan.  Work one section of the pan at a time.  Cover completely and cook until frittata is not quite set, about 5 minutes.

Uncover the skillet, sprinkle on goat cheese.  Transfer to oven; broil until the frittata is golden brown and puffed on top; 3-5 minutes (internal temp 160 degrees).  Serve and enjoy.
