Thanksgiving breakfast ideas that won't leave you too stuffed for turkey


What to eat on Thanksgiving morning to tide you over 'til the big feast? Here are 10 light breakfast ideas that won't spoil your turkey appetite!

Veggie skillet frittata

Avoid hyper-caloric baked goods on Thanksgiving morning, and turn your fork toward this healthy veggie-heavy frittata instead. Meat-lovers will still be satisfied with a hint of chopped bacon or Canadian ham, but the rest is veggie-licious with peas, chopped red bell pepper, fresh spinach and chopped onions. Top with a dusting of grated cheese. You can cook this up in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, let the eggs set, and broil until the eggs are a bit puffy and the cheese is starting to brown. Garnish with fresh pea shoots.
