Breakfast during the week for me needs to be portable, and quick to make that day or made ahead to reheat later. The morning rush of packing lunches, getting the kids to spring out of the bed, and just getting myself together to head out the door can be overwhelming at times. Even though I love my Instant Pot Omelette Bites I was craving something just a little different. My Instant Pot Frittata is the perfect solution for a healthy breakfast that can be made ahead for a delicious breakfast meal prep.
There are a ton of options for this Instant Pot Frittata that could help fit a low-carb, or keto lifestyle. Packed with protein and vegetables this is a delicious and healthy breakfast for the weekday or wonderful weekend brunch.
Prepare the filling for the Instant Pot Frittata
For my frittata I thinly sliced some ripe tomatoes, which you could substitute halved grape tomatoes or sliced plum tomatoes. I sautéed sliced Vidalia onions, and spinach in a fry pan. Of course, you could use sliced green onions or shallots. Also, you could add some broccoli florets for some extra veg. Arrange the sliced tomatoes, and cooked vegetables in the bottom of a slightly greased 7-inch round pan, I used a Fat Daddio pan.
You can leave this without meat or you can add the breakfast meat of your choice. I used cooked pork breakfast sausage, however, cooked bacon or ham could be used instead. Add a layer of cooked meat, if desired, to the top of the veggie layer. Follow this with a layer of shredded cheese.
Next in a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk (water or nut milk can be substituted here), ground mustard, garlic salt, hot sauce, and pepper.
Cook the Instant Pot Frittata
Pour the egg mixture into the pan with the vegetables. Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the Instant Pot with the rack. Place the pan on top of the rack, and seal the lid according to your manufacturers instructions. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes, and then do a 10-minutes natural pressure release. Cool for a few minutes then carefully place a plate on top of the pan and flip out. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to one week.
