My Simple Recipe for a Delicious Frittata

A simple recipe for a delicious frittata. Read now or pin for later. - Health Happens at Home

Frittatas are great.  They are easy and can help you clean out the fridge or just get rid of some leftovers!  If you are wondering, a frittata is kind of like a baked omelette or a quiche without the crust. This simple recipe can be adapted in many ways. Simiply use any leftover meat or vegetables, and any cheese you have (including cottage cheese). You could include black beans and corn for a Southwest taste and top with salsa and avocado. Shredded, uncooked, red potatoes are also a great addition. Just add what you have, bake and enjoy!

Course: Breakfast

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 35 min

Total Time: 45 min

Serves: 8


  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 12 cup cheese any on hand
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked optional, may use any other meat as desired
  • 18 cup frozen spinach, chopped more as desired. Fresh spinach or kale are also good
  • 12 cup sweet potato, cooked , chopped
  • 1 tsp onion powder may use sauteed yellow or red onion or 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
  • sprinkle turmeric
  • sprinkle salt to taste. we eat very low sodium
  • sprindle fresh ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Mix eggs, milk, cheese and pour into greased baking dish. I grease with coconut oil and use a glass pie plate.
  3. Add meat and vegetables as desired. I usually mix the meat into the whole pan and the vegetables on half since my kids don't prefer frittata with vegetables.
  4. Bake for 25 - 35 minutes or until a toothpick or knife inserted comes out clean.
  5. Occasionally, I pour the above mix into a store bought whole wheat pie crust to make a quiche instead.
