Hi friends! A breakfast casserole is one of the easiest ways to use your leftover Thanksgiving or other holiday celebration food. This recipe is super flexible and comes together quickly. And while I’ve made other variations of this before, at least one of them required additional cooking. It’s easy enough to sauté up some kale, but sometimes you just want to mix a bunch of stuff in a bowl and bake it away. If you prefer the latter, then I have the recipe for you! Try my Healthy Leftover Turkey and Veggie Breakfast Egg Casserole Recipe.

Did I mention you don’t have to cook anything extra to make this? No sauté pans = less stress.
And this recipe is totally flexible. Add in your favorite leftover veggies: carrots, green beans, etc. The possibilities are endless!
And the stuffing part is totally optional, but I thought it went really nicely in this Healthy Leftover Turkey and Veggie Breakfast Casserole Recipe.
Healthy Turkey Breakfast Egg Casserole

- Cook Time: 25 mins
- Total Time: 30 mins
- Yield: 4 1x
For breakfast after your Thanksgiving / holiday celebration, use your leftover turkey, vegetables, and even stuffing to make this simple and delicious Healthy Turkey Breakfast Casserole.
- 1 teaspoon oil (I used canola)
- 8 large eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup cooked turkey, chopped small
- 1/2 – 1 cup leftover cooked vegetables (I used roasted brussel sprouts)
- 1/2 cup leftover stuffing
- 1/2 cup, cheddar cheese
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Brush an 8×8 inch (or 7 1/2×7 1/2 inch) baking dish with oil.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Whisk in turkey, vegetables, stuffing (torn into smaller pieces if needed) and cheddar cheese until evenly distributed.
- Pour egg mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the center is set (when a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean).
- When the egg dish is save for consumption, serve and enjoy!
Serves: 4-8 (depending on how large you cut the portions). I cut mine into 6 servings.
Note: You can use oil or melted butter to brush and prep your baking dish. You can also use non-stick spray, but I’ve personally be working that one out of my cooking and baking.
