Frittata Recipe~ A Great Way To Use Leftovers!

Frittata is a dish I’m surprised I don’t make more often and include it in my weekly menus. A Frittata can be as simple as throwing some eggs, cheese, and some veggies together and baked. I like to make Frittata using leftover ingredients from the fridge.  I added all of our favorite ingredients…fried potatoes, tomatoes, ham, bacon, green peppers, broccoli and of course, the eggs and cheese. Serve with a side of fresh fruit and you have a perfect meal for breakfast or dinner!


 Frittata Recipe


  • 3-4 potatoes, washed and cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped finely
  • 1-2 tablespoons oil for cooking potatoes and onions (helps Frittata cook faster)
  • 4-5 strips of cooked bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped ham
  • 1/4 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli crowns
  • 2 tablespoons butter for cooking green peppers and mushrooms
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheese


  1. Cook bacon {we like cooking in the oven}
  2. In a large skillet {that can be put in the oven} cook potatoes and onions until tender
  3. Remove from pan and set aside
  4. Chop ham, bell pepper, broccoli, set aside
  5. Add eggs and milk to a measuring cup or bowl and whisk until fluffy, add cheese and stir until combined
  6. After the bacon is done cooking, crumble
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  8. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, vegetables, ham and bacon to a medium mixing bowl and mix together.
  9. Pour egg mixture on top and stir slightly
  10. Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish and place in oven
  11. Cook until the eggs are set on the bottom or knife inserted comes out clean, approximately 30-35 minutes.
