1 – egg

1 tablespoon – milk

Salt and pepper

3 tablespoons – leftover cranberry sauce

Preheat broiler. Beat egg, 1 tablespoon milk, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl; set aside. Mix cranberry sauce and BBQ sauce together in a second bowl; set aside.

Heat olive oil in an 8-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add turkey, potatoes, and bell pepper, and sauté until bell pepper is soft, about 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Pour egg mixture over the turkey mixture and cook gently until egg is set around the edges, carefully running a spatula around the sides periodically to loosen. When the edges are set, place under broiler until top is puffed and cooked.

Sprinkle with chopped green onion. Toast bread. Place toast on a serving plate, spread toast with cranberry mixture, then slide the omelet onto the toast.

Serve immediately with remaining 8-ounce glass of milk.
