Mini Baked Frittata with Potatoes, Bacon, Sharp Cheddar, and Green Onions

Mini Baked Frittata with Potatoes, Bacon, Sharp Cheddar, and Green Onions

I made this for breakfast yesterday and I absolutely loved it.  I was craving a Peasant’s Omelet and a frittata so I decided to combine the two.  It took a little more time to make because I had to pre-cook the potatoes but it was definitely worth the extra time.  I loved everything about this little frittata and I can’t wait to make it again.

Mini Baked Frittata with Potatoes, Bacon, Sharp Cheddar, and Green Onions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a mini baking dish with cooking spray.

Slice the baby potatoes then cook them in boiling water over high heat for 5-7 minutes or until fork tender.  Cook one slice of bacon until crisp in a skillet over medium heat then place on a paper towel to drain the grease; crumble.

Mix the eggs with the milk until well combined then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Place some of the potato into the mini baking dish; add a little bit of bacon, cheddar, and green onions.

Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and serve immediately.  Enjoy.

  1. How quick and easy and yet so palate pleasing! This is re-inventing eggs!!!

    1. Jen,

      They don’t have measurements on the baking dish but it holds a little over one cup of liquid. I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Pam

  2. This looks excellent!! Even picky picky husband will enjoy this (and that is saying something)!!

  3. Dear Pam,
    Another gorgeous looking dish, and amazing combination of flavours!! It looks ultra delicious!!
    Cheers and hope you have a fantastic weekend,
    Lia.

  4. Can this be doubled or tripled without a problem.

    1. Thanks so much Pam. I want to make it for a brunch and also thanks for the larger recipe giving me an idea of the baking time. Love your recipes!

    You are the QUEEN of baked eggs and frittatas, Pam! I have tried many of your egg recipes, and they have all been delicious. This frittata is no exception- I love everything about it! 🙂

  6. great cast of characters, pam! quadrupling this would make for a great brunch dish!

  7. You always make the best breakfasts!! They look so perfect and delicious every time!! I wish we were neighbors, I would bring over coffee every morning in hopes I would catch you making something like this! 🙂

  8. I love frittatas and never thought about making individual ones! Though now I simply must get some cute individual casserole type dishes!

  9. Ina Garten did a frittata like this, as well!! It makes for very good leftovers!!!

  10. Pam – you make the best baked egg dishes – you’re becoming my breakfast heroine.

  11. This looks delightful! I think I will need to try this, or at least some variation with the ingredients I have on hand.

  12. Yum, perfect for Dining Alone! my husband hates eggs but I love them, this looks delicious.

  13. OMG is that the cutest little baker ever? Great recipe but dang that dish is an attention getter.

  14. There’s a similar recipe on the the Eating Well web site. I have two suggestions. 1) you can microwave the potato to cook it and 2) I tend to throw in leftover (in my house, there never are a lot) cooked veggies from the night before. Ok, I lied, three suggestions: I also use egg beaters since I have high cholesterol but I love eggs.

  15. Made this dish much larger scale and was delicious, used ham instead of bacon, as I did not have any bacon at the time, will be making again loved it and really love your site. thanks for sharing
