TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2-3 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces thinly sliced deli smoked turkey, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup diced green pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons water

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook the turkey, onion, green pepper and garlic in 2 tablespoons butter until vegetables are tender. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, melt remaining butter.
  • 2. In a bowl, beat the eggs and water. Pour into skillet; cook over medium heat. As eggs set, lift the edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath.
