Baked Frittata Recipe Perfect For Brunch
Easter is right around the corner and Josh created a Loaded Baked Potato Frittata that he insists you all make for Easter brunch. This frittata is just like a loaded baked potato but in frittata form. The frittata is filled with potatoes, cheese, bacon, and green onions. He also topped it off with a dollop of sour cream.
The bacon part sold you, huh? Bacon is not my cup of tea, but my boys love it. Caleb loves when daddy shares his precious bacon.
A Baked Potato Frittata? Yes, Please.
Josh loves a loaded baked potato. He says that is the only way to do it if it’s going to be a meal. He doesn’t want a wimpy baked potato. I love baked potatoes with cottage cheese and salsa. He thinks I am crazy. He won’t even try my kind of tater. He doesn’t know what he’s missing!
So when Josh suggested a Loaded Baked Potato Frittata, I cleared the kitchen and let him go to town. There is definitely nothing wimpy about this frittata. It is hearty, cheesy, and a crowd pleaser.

Josh left the skins on the potatoes because he wanted a rustic baked frittata, but if the potato skins bug you, go ahead and get out your peeler. Look at the big chunks of potatoes! Spud heaven! And don’t forget about the bacon in there. And there is cheese in the frittata AND on top! Josh wasn’t messing around! This really is the best Frittata recipe!

And if you aren’t having brunch, no worries, this frittata also makes a killer dinner. You can’t go wrong with this recipe any time of the day!
Loaded Baked Potato Frittata
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 small russet potatoes washed and chopped
- 2 green onions chopped
- 8 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 cup green onion chopped
- 5 strips cooked bacon chopped
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup Cheddar cheese
- Sour cream for serving
- 1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
- 2. Heat oil in a large skillet and cook the potatoes until tender, about 5 minutes. Add in the 2 tablespoons of green onion. Set aside.
- 3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in the ¼ cup green onion, bacon, potatoes, and ½ cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
- 4. Pour mixture into a greased 10-inch skillet. Put the skillet on the stove and cook over medium heat until the mixture is half set, do not stir. You just want the frittata to set up. Put the skillet in the oven and bake for 12 minutes. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and top with remaining cheese. Put the skillet back in the oven and bake until cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes.
- 5. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Cut and serve warm.

Delicious!! I’m definately adding this recipe to our menu. Thanks for the recipe!!
Delish! This looks like the perfect dish to serve at a weekend brunch.
Can I come to your house for breakfast =)! Breakfast foods are some of my favorites and I love making them for dinner. This looks awesome! I love loaded baked potatoes and this is simply genius.
I still have to try your tater 🙂
I love frittatas!! This looks delicious, good job Josh!
Now this is one hearty and tasty looking breakfast!
wow does this ever look amazing. potatoes and egg dishes are so good for breakfast or anytime. love how it’s made in, and baked in one skillet.
When you partially cook on the stove, do you stir or just let it sit over the stove and NOT stir? That’s the only part I’m confused about. Looks delicious and I’m pinning to make later!!
No, do not stir the frittata. You just want it to set up before putting it in the oven. I updated the recipe. I hope it is more clear!
Seriously yummy looking, would love a late night slice right now!
This is just one more reason why I need to buy a cast iron skillet.
I had all ingredients at home and I made thus frittata on Tuesday. Hubby and I both loved it so much! Thank you for sharing the recipe
Josh is a smart man! We should all make this … I will be 🙂
Okay-what if I don’t have a cast iron skillet??!?! Suggestions??
I baked the potatoes before frying them because I find that makes them extra crispy. I am all about the crisp. I substituted purple onion and leeks for green onions because that is what I had. I caramelized them first before adding them into the mix. It was a loaded frittata, enjoyed by all. Thanks for the great recipe.
ah, good work josh! I’d eat this any day.
I saw this post the other day and was inspired to pull out my cast iron skillet and make my own frittata with some leftover chorizo and sweet potatoes that I had in my fridge. It turned out great! Thanks for the inspiration and for reminding me how GREAT a cast iron skillet is!! 🙂
Made this this morning and is very yummy. However be warned that potatoes cannot be cooked in a skillet in 5 minutes. I cooked mine for over then 10 min and they were starting to burn before they got tender in the inside. I had to boil mine first then fry them in the skillet. And I cut them in small cubes as it appeared in the pictures…
You have the most tempting recipes. I have selected a number of them to make. Yummy describes this blog.
Wonderful recipe for my first frittata! Next time I think I will serve with salsa. Yum.
no arguing with that…it is loaded and delicious!
Thanks for the post! I made this for dinner tonight with a salad…kids ate it up quick! I will certainly make this again 🙂 Thanks!
I made the loaded baked potato frittata yesterday for brunch and everyone raved about how good it was. I love a great frittata.
Congrats on having this recipe shown on PARADE website!
Saw this on Facebook – this looks ridiculously good!!! Can’t wait to try it!!
Just reshared this scrumptious recipe on my blog! Can’t wait to try it!! Congrats on your new bambino!! Stop by my blog sometime!! http://www.thedailynest.com
this sounds great for my womens bible study but can I cook this in a pyrex baking dish instead of a skillet?
love the sound of this…can you make this then freeze it?
Made this today but used American cheese in place of cheddar since it was what I had on hand. My husband absolutely loved this recipe.
This is going to be tonight’s dinner,looks great. This will be my first time making these ! Thanks
I don’t have an oven proof fry pan – can I just bake this? How long? Thanks!
Hi Maria and Josh,
Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! I prepared it as instructed. When my boyfriend finished eating an 8 x 8 pan (in one setting), he said “get on the computer and thank that blogger!” LOL. This recipe is definitely being added to our list of favorites.
Ha! So happy he likes the recipe! Thanks for letting us know!
How did you do the stove part in a 8X8 pan or did you just bake it for longer & not have it set up on the stove?
I’m a big fan of frittata’s for dinner and this is a really good recipe! I’m saving it as a good base recipe to adapt in the future – thanks so much.
i love making this
delicious and wonderful thought.
Just made this for dinner and it was soooo good! I will definitely make this again!
Oops! Forgot to give this 5 stars for ymminess!
