Last summer I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon, and I’m so glad I did! Not only is it fun to use, it makes cooking nutrient dense foods fun, quick, and easy. Since I got mine I’ve been exploring ways to use it that are different from the way you can use a slow cooker. This Instant Pot Frittata recipe is similar to the Breakfast Frittata, but it cooks in a glass container in the Pot (yep, you can do that!). It is so flavorful that we eat it for supper as frequently as breakfast. Also, this recipe is Whole30 approved!
This recipe was designed for the 6 quart Instant Pot. You can use it with a larger Pot, but the smaller one may need a different size glass container to cook it in.
- 6 large eggs
- 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp black or white pepper
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed into small pieces or shredded
- ½ lb ground pork, chicken, turkey, or beef
- 1 small onion, peeled and diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 cup water
- Plug in the Instant Pot and press the Sauté button. Sauté the pork, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, and bell pepper for about 10 minutes until onions are translucent, soft, and fragrant; then press the warm/cancel button to turn off the Instant Pot.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, and set aside.
- Transfer pork mixture to a 7-cup greased glass dish (I use a Pyrex dish, and YES you can cook with this in your Instant Pot!). Pour whisked eggs over the pork mixture. Place trivet in Instant Pot, then pour in water. Place dish with egg mixture onto trivet and lock lid.
- Secure the lid to the Instant Pot, close off the pressure valve and press the Manual button. Then press the “-“ button until the display reads 9 minutes.
- Once complete, use the quick pressure release option by using a wooden spoon so you aren’t close to the release valve; turn the knob to the Venting position. Once the steam has stopped coming out and the pressure indicator has dropped, carefully remove the lid from Instant Pot.
- Remove the glass dish and let sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to allow eggs to set. Slice and serve.
If you are feeling a little wild and crazy you can include various different flavors and textures such as sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, and carrots into the saute in the first step. I’d love to hear what your favorite flavors and textures are.
