We first tried this out when our electricity went out and we actually made it on the grill! It was so good, I decided I wanted it again for lunch.
The Cook with me linked is one we made with bacon, we loved it, but didn’t love it as much as we did the Ham that we made the first time. We also loved it with Asiago and Basil jack mix of cheese (we live in WI so the basil jack is pretty easy to find here) if you can’t find it, pepper jack is a good stand in. Fresh basil would be even better!
You can use Bacon, Ham, or even the mock sausage we have a cook with me on (link down below for this)
This one happens to be Bacon and Pepperjack but there are other options in the notes section below.

1/2 Cup Onions(Diced)
1/3 CupRed Peppers(Diced)
dashSalt and Pepper (To taste)
This recipe was made in an 8" frying pan. If you don't have a small frying pan, a sauce pan will work but you probably shouldn't use the broiler at the end. If your pan/pot is 7" across, only use four eggs or it will be difficult to cook fully/evenly.
Fry 4 Slices of Bacon
While bacon is cooking, dice onions and red peppers.
Set aside cooked bacon and reserve one tsp of bacon grease, wipe out pan.
Add 1 tsp of bacon grease, onions, and peppers to pan (med heat) Cook until onions are translucent and just start to brown.
While cooking onions and peppers, remove stems and roughly chop 2 cups of spinach.
Add Spinach and bacon to the pan once onions start to brown. Stir occasionally
Break 5 eggs into a bowl and whisk well.
When spinach is wilted, turn heat to med low (2.5 on our stove.) It is better to err on having the temperature a little low than too high. (Or the eggs will over-brown on the bottom before they are fully cooked.)
Pour eggs into pan and stir just enough to combine. Don't over-stir or you will end up with scrambled eggs. Mix just enough so there are no big clumps of veggies.
Cover pan and let cook for 10 min. (Checking on it at about 8 min because not all stoves cook the same)
While Frittata is cooking shred your cheese.
If you have a broiler in your oven, set top oven rack on second shelf.
Check for browning around edges and if eggs are nearly set. (There may still be runny eggs in center that will be cooked while under broiler.)
When eggs are nearly set, sprinkle cheese over the top.
If you don't have a broiler, or if you are cooking in a pot (vs frying pan) at this point, turn off heat, (leave pan on burner) cover and let sit for five minutes to finish cooking the eggs on the top and melt the cheese.
If you DO have a broiler and are using a broiler-safe pan, turn broiler on and set to HI. Place pan under the broiler and WATCH IT. Once cheese is melted and bubbly, remove from broiler.
Eat it as-is, or take advantage of the low points by adding toppings like cheese, sour cream or tri-colored tortilla chips. As pictured, the chili will be 2-3 SP per one-cup serving due to the tortilla strips.
Main Course, Soup

1Cup0 point Chicken broth
2CansRed Gold tomato sauce
1Candiced petite tomatoes with chilies
2CansRo-Tel Lime and Cilantro
1OzTones Taco seasoning mix
1CanBush's chili beans with mild chili sauce
1CanFat-free refried beans
1CanBush's low sodium pinto beans
1CanBush's low sodium black beans
Start with a large pot on medium heat
Spray a little cooking spray in the pan and add onions
Cook onions, stirring occasionally, until soft
Add ground turkey and brown
As turkey browns, crumble it so you don't end up with huge chunks in the finished chili. (See the end of this post for my recommended meat chopper.)
While turkey browns, open all the cans.
After the turkey has browned a little, dump in all of the remaining ingredients.
Bring to a boil and turn the burner down to low.
Cover and cook for about three hours, stirring every 1/2 hour to keep beans from burning on the bottom.
Be careful of the tomato sauce. Some can be as high as 11 SP per can! The Red Gold brand I used are 0 SP per can.
If you use the chili beans without sauce, this can be 0 SP per serving. All of the other ingredients in the recipe were 0 SP ingredients. Be sure to check points on anything you substitute.
Adding a packet of these tri-colored tortilla chips adds 2 SP:
I recommend this meat chopper if you want to try to give the turkey a consistency close to hamburger in this dish:
