Get ready for a tasty recipe made from upcycled foods such as ham and stuffing in this Leftover Ham & Stuffing Frittata.
This is a sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
As we get ready for Thanksgiving, we also know what comes after Thanksgiving and it isn’t just Black Friday.
It’s all those LEFTOVERS.
Maybe you are like me and you over plan? My biggest fear is not having enough food to feed everyone that stops by. We always end up with unexpected guests.
My husband tends to invite everyone and then let me know about it just before we have dinner, so now I have got used to it and plan for extra.
Sometimes though that means we have a lot of extra food, and we all know it gets old eating five rounds of ham and stuffing.
What is Upcycled Food?
That’s why I love this trend of upcycled food. This simple means taking leftovers of food or transforming different parts of foods to create something new and tasty out of them.
For instance a good example would be using your leftover bread for stuffing or turning some stems of veggies into a nice fruit juice.
There are many ways to describe it although in the past, we basically would speak of it as recreating new meals from leftovers. This actually is a great way to cut down on waste too.
As a kid I remember my dad being so upset when we threw away a lot of food that we just didn’t feel like eating. I never fully grasp why this was so upsetting to him until I got older and became an adult.
Now, I get it of course there is the cost, it’s money basically thrown in the trash but then there is the humanity aspect. So many that have no food to eat and we are throwing ours in the trash? It doesn’t seem right, does it?
How do you make a Leftover Ham & Stuffing Frittata?
As you finish up those Thanksgiving meals, more than likely there will be a lot of leftovers.
During this time, it’s really easy to get tired of eating those same things over and over again. We’ve found though this Ham & Stuffing Frittata is one of our favorite ways to upcycle ham and stuffing.
Who would have really thought that you can reuse that stuffing? My kids LOVED this too. My son was begging for more.
Essentially, this combines, ham, stuffing, and eggs with a little bit of cheese, but Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Spray is what truly enhances the flavor.
What is the key ingredient to add flavor to Leftover Ham & Stuffing Frittata?
It’s Pompeian 100% Grapeseed Oil Spray. This spray is used to coat the dish before adding in the ingredients, plus coat it once the ingredients are all in the dish.
This spray is made from the seeds of wine grapes and it’s very rich in Vitamin E. It also has a high smoke point, which makes it a great choice for baking in the oven.
Another benefit of Pompeian 100% Grapeseed Oil Spray is that it does not dispense any propellants or artificial additives.
This is the optimal choice when making this tasty Leftover Ham & Stuffing Frittata.
