Thanksgiving Leftovers Frittata

Got a ton of Thanksgiving leftovers and tried of turkey sandwiches? All of those leftovers are the perfect ingredients to make a frittata. Frittatas are great for any meal of the day, and they are one of my favorite ways to use leftovers. As an added bonus, they taste great hot or cold, making them an ideal option to make extra to take for lunch the next day.
