Loaded Potato Frittata Recipe

loaded potato frittata 2 Loaded Potato Frittata Recipe

If you are coming over from the 20 Meals from Costco for $150, welcome to my One Dish Dinners site. This recipe is part of Plan #2 and can be made as is, or without the bacon. If you already have bacon on hand, feel free to use. If not, it’s easy to omit. The packages of turkey bacon or regular bacon are very large at Costco and not worth purchasing for just 1 meal. Perhaps in a future “breakfast edition”…we will include more bacon recipes ๐Ÿ™‚


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.ย  Serve it with a side of fresh fruit and you’ve got the entire food pyramid covered!

Loaded Potato Frittata


6 slices turkey bacon (optional)
4 medium Russet potatoes
8 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 bunch green onions, sliced

Side ideas: Clementine oranges, apple slices, bananas, cantaloupe wedges



  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • (Optional: Cook the turkey bacon (or regular bacon if you prefer) in the cast iron skillet.)
  • 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 don’t 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.ย  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.ย  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.ย  Let cool slightly before slicing.
  • Slice and serve topped with green onion slices and a side of fresh fruit.

  62. Michelle Evans says:

    This recipe looks super yummy and I will definitely be trying it out! I just found your site through The Happy Housewife site and I can already tell that I will be following you closely as I am constantly looking for new easy and affordable dishes for my family! Thanks for your great ideas!

  63. Brenda says:

    I am going to try this recipe tonight for dinner. However, I did notice one thing in the recipe and it seems that there is no mention of how to prepare the potatoes before cooking them. Are the potatoes suppose to be diced, shredded, chopped, cubed, sliced or left whole? Peeled or unpeeled? If I was just going to make this recipe without seeing a picture of it, I would have thought that I needed to leave the potatoes whole while cooking them in the bacon grease. No matter, it still sounds like a great recipe!

  64. AllieZirkle says:

    Yum! I’d love to make this for dinner. I don’t have a cast iron skillet. 4 potatoes sounds like an awful lot, but yum!!

  65. Kelly says:

    This looks great. I assume the bacon is supposed to go back in with the potatoes before the egg mixture?

  66. Ann says:

    Sounds Yummy. I can’t decide between this and the spicy Quinoa with red beans.

  67. Kathy Jacob says:

    This looks really good. Where can I get a cast iron skillet?

  68. Susanne says:

    I will be making this this week on “breakfast for dinner night”!!

  69. Tina says:

    Love this recipe…and gluten free too!! Yum!

  81. Betty A says:

    Def. going to try this one. My dh loves loaded baked potatoes & the kids are big fans of anything with melted cheese. ;o)
    I love that you used turkey bacon as that is what I use 99% of the time. With light sour cream, 2% cheese & a big salad on the side this will make a filling meal that won’t burst our calorie bank! Thanks!

  82. Jennifer Cockburn says:

    I will be making this for dinner ^_^

  83. Tessa Wyman says:

    This looks so great and inexpensive to make…cant wait to make it next week. Gonna add it to my menu plan.

  84. Toni says:

    This just got added to our menu for next week. The recipes on this new site look so yummy and simple. With 2 1/2 year old twins, anything simple is a blessing. Thank you!

  85. Natalie says:

    I’m making this right now and was wondering how I should cut the potatoes? What size pan will work? Thank you!

    • Natalie says:

      I ended up peeling and cubing the potatoes. I put them in a large calaphlon pan. Also, I mixed the chopped bacon in with the egg mixture. It looks unbelievable and tasted like potato skins-delicious!

    i would like to make this recipe…but have a couple of questions. do the potatoes need to be peeled and chopped? what size if so? and what do i do with the bacon? i am new at this. thanks for the help.

  90. Becky says:

    Thanks for including this in your weekly menu plan. We were having a live off the pantry week and so we tried this recipe. Everyone loved it! 3 picky kids give it a thumbs up!
    5 out of 5 is awesome, Thanks Again!

    • Becky says:

      I have made this maybe a dozen times since my above review. It is still a family favorite for dinner or a lazy weekend brunch. I chop the potatoes into 1/4-1/2″ cubes cook them in the pan as instructed, add the egg mixture and then using my kitchen shears I cut the bacon over the eggs/pan & let the pieces fall into the dish. I have made this with whatever cheese we have in the house it always turns out great!

  91. Sherril says:

    Yeah, do you slice the potatoes? How thin? When do you add the bacon? I just muddled along but I would like to know.

  92. Seth says:

    After reading the recipe, I had some of the same confusion in the comments about how the potatoes should be cut and what is done with the cooked bacon (I’m an amateur, but learning. This site is awesome)

    Here’s what I did for both, hope this helps:

    – cut the potatoes down to maybe 1/4″-1/2″ cubes (like the Ore-ida frozen Potatoes O’Brien size)
    – while the potatoes were cooking in the grease, cut up the bacon into small bacon bit size chunks
    – before dumping the eggs in, threw the bacon back into the potatoes and gave them a good stir/mix
    – finished recipe out as written
