Instant Pot Goat Cheese Frittata (KETO)


  • Author: Samantha Shue
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 55 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x

Description

This goat cheese frittata is perfect for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. Don’t be alarmed by the total time it takes to cook. Once it’s in the Instant Pot, it’s a set it and forget it type of recipe. Your Instant Pot will do all of the heavy lifting.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 5 slices of bacon, cooked and diced
  • 10 eggs
  • ½ cup half and half
  • Salt and pepper to your liking
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • ¾ cup diced asparagus
  • 4oz goat cheese, crumbled 
  • Dill, for serving
  • 1 avocado, sliced for serving

Instructions

  1. Use butter or nonstick cooking spray on a 7-cup round heat proof container (I’ve linked one you can buy at the bottom of the page). Pour 2 cups of water into your Instant Pot.
  2. Take a large bowl and whisk together the eggs, half & half, salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in the bacon, red bell pepper and asparagus.
  4. Lastly, add your crumbled goat cheese and lightly stir it all together. 
  5. Pour the egg mixture into your prepared glass container and cover with foil. Place your glass container on top of the steam rack and using the handles on the steam rack, lower it into the Instant Pot. 
  6. Secure the lid and set the pressure release to SEALING. Select pressure cook and set the cooking time to 25 minutes at high pressure.
  7. When it’s finished cooking, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes you can move the pressure release to venting to release any remaining steam.
  8. Wear your oven mitts and grab the steam rack handles and slowly pull out your frittata with the steam rack. 
  9. Cut the frittata into wedges and serve with sliced avocado and dill.

Notes

Remember that it will take 15 minutes for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure before the 15 minutes of cooking begins. Plan accordingly with the time.

Variations: try using sun dried tomatoes instead of red pepper. It tastes phenomenal with goat cheese. If you try adding sun dried tomatoes, drain the oil out of the jar first.

NOTES:

  1. I tried making a frittata with sun-dried tomatoes as well and I didn’t drain the oil off of them first. It made my frittata VERY oily, it wasn’t good. Then I tried making egg muffins with sun-dried tomatoes and they were perfect. I don’t know what happened when I tried them with the frittata, but be sure and drain the oil if it’s an ingredient you want to add.
  2. You can also serve this with a mixed-green salad with a basic vinaigrette to lighten it up a bit. I love having breakfast food with a mixed green salad.
  3. If you do not use the same size cooking dish that I mention in the recipe, your frittata will cook at a different time. I made the mistake once of using a different size glass dish and the middle of the frittata was still raw when I cut into it. Be sure and use the correct size dish when making this recipe.
