Breakfast in a Pan Frittata

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Not knowing what to fix for breakfast can be a real chore. This was the result of "I'm tired of the same old thing". Served this with homemade biscuits and sliced tomatoes. Makes two generous servings.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using medium shredder blade of food processor, shred the potato.

  3. Cook and stir until potato is lightly browned and other vegetables are crisp tender.

My husband really liked it for Father's day breakfast, he ate both servings. I did add one more egg and I too did not attempt the flip because it looked too wet, so I put it under the broiler to "fix" the egg and then to melt the cheese. Also, I used regular onion and Simply Potatoes (pre-shredded). I added the mushroom and bacon later than onion, pepper, and potato.

Loved this frittata! I did use cooked sausage for the bacon and monterey jack cheese. I cut it into quarters to flip and then put the cheese on the top and proceeded with the recipe. DH kept saying how good it was. Served with apple fritters for a wonderful breakfast.

This was excellent! I did not try to flip the frittata but broiled the egg on top instead. It turned out perfectly and I will make again. Thanks Paula!
