Clearly, the best part of Christmas day is the turkey. So what’s the best thing about boxing day? The turkey! Well, it is with my leftover turkey and bacon mini frittatas recipe at least. They’re the perfect post-Christmas lunch or snack to sooth the post-Christmas blues.
I absolutely adore a good frittata. They’re basically like a lovely, thick omelette, packed with delicious any manner of awesome fillings. You’d usually make one big in in a frying man, but I decided to make mine in a muffin tray.

I promise, I wouldn’t inflict tons of elaborate recipes upon you the day after Christmas. This one is sooo simple and if you’ve got a good supply of eggs and a muffin tray, you more than qualify to create this lovely recipe!
All you need is to do is fill each muffin hole with your cooked leftover turkey and raw, chopped, streaky bacon. Then, you simply beat all your eggs with a little salt and pepper and fill up each muffin hole sightly below full.
Whack it in the oven and the job’s a good’un!

The best thing about any frittata is that you can eat it/them hot or cold. I find that they taste even better cold!
The result is a light and fluffy, beautifully cooked egg muffin, filled with smoky bacon and that lovely roasted turkey.
There’s certainly no need to overdo the cook time as you don’t want your already cooked turkey to dry out.
