Frittatas. They make a great breakfast. They make a great lunch. And they make a wonderful one dish dinner!
You’ve got the protein from the eggs, cheese and bacon, plus a little starch from the potatoes. Serve it with a side of fresh fruit and you’ve got the entire food pyramid covered!
If I had to pick my most favorite frittata of all time, it might be this one. Might.
I say might, only because I have a hard time calling anything my favorite because I just love food. And breakfast for dinner. And baked potatoes. And baked potatoes in frittata form.
Bacon, potato bits, cheese, chives or green onions, sour cream dollop.
I think I’ve said enough.
Add this Loaded Potato Frittata to your meal plan right.now. It won’t disappoint.
Unless you don’t like bacon. Or baked potatoes. (I can’t help with that. And I’m sorry!)
But seriously, this one is a family favorite around here!
Loaded Potato Frittata
- 6 slices turkey bacon (optional)
- 4 medium Russet potatoes,chopped into small cubes
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 bunch green onions sliced
- Fresh fruit side dish
- Preheat oven to 350.
- (Optional: Cook the turkey bacon (or regular bacon if you prefer) in the cast iron skillet - add 5-7 minutes onto the cooking time for this step.)
- Remove the bacon from the skillet and then saute the potatoes in the bacon grease for 5 to 7 minutes, or until begin to soften.If you dont make bacon, the cook the potatoes with 2 Tbsp olive or vegetable oil.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and sour cream. Add a little salt and pepper and whisk that in too.
- Once the potatoes have softened some, pour the egg mixture over top and let cook on the stovetop for about 3 minutes, or until you see the eggs along the edges begin to set.
- Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the eggs in the middle have set.
- Add the shredded cheese to the top and then bake for another 5 minutes. Be sure to use a heavy duty oven mitt, as the handle will be hot, hot, hot!
- Once the cheese is melted, remove the skillet from the oven. Let cool slightly before slicing.
- Prepare fresh fruit for side dish.
- Slice and serve Loaded Potato Frittata topped with green onion slices and a side of fresh fruit.

The link does not take you to the Loaded Potato Frittata recipe- it takes you to a Beef Fajita Skillet dinner. 🙁

Hi Jenn, thank you for allowing me to comment in this bog post. 5DollarDinners.com is a best blog to save money while spending for healthy foods. Keep up the good work. This blog is worth visiting. Potato fritata has a lot of health benefits.
I am gluten free and this turned out perfect. I added peppers and smoked paprika to the potatoes to give a little more seasoning and I am enjoying. I am packing it for lunch. Thank you so much!
