The last thing you’re thinking as you roll out of  your berth today is to get back in the galley and cook. Take-out sushi, carry-out pizza…anything but cooking…anything but turkey. But this breakfast recipe might change your mind.

5 eggs
1 2/3 cups milk
2/3 cup chopped leeks
1 tablespoon minced sage
1 teaspoon minced rosemary
1 cup shredded cooked turkey
1 cup grated Jarlsburg cheese (or Swiss)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Preparing the morning-after-Thanksgiving breakfast with a peek out the galley porthole. A rather dreary November day. Onto the prep work…pre-heat your galley oven to 350 degrees.

Grate 1 cup of Jarlsburg cheese (or the equivalent in Swiss or Guyere).


Whip up the eggs with the herbs.


Add milk, shredded turkey, cheese and leeks. Mix well.


Place a pie pastry into the a 9″ pie pan. This can be a prepared, store bought pie crust or make your own. Pour your egg mixture into the pastry lined pie pan.
