If Y'all follow my Facebook page, you have heard me talk about how much I love my Instant Pot.

I know, I know, I was late to join the craze. But that is always me.

I think I am channeling one of my relatives past when these things come around. It is like the devil and the angel on your shoulders dealio.

Me - OMG OMG OMG that is sooooo cool, I want one!!
Them - What? Don't waste your time, it is just a crazy fad that will pass.
Me - But I realllllllllllllllly want one! (Why do I sound like a whiny three year old???)
Them - Trust me, it is a waste of money, it will be forgotten a year from now.

Well, the Instant Pots have been popular for WELL over a year and here I am finally using one, and falling in love with it over and over again!

Take that Negative Nancy errrr Ned or whoever the heck you are!

Don't even get me started on how long it took me to jump on board with the sheet pan meal craze 🙄

So, anywho, where was I?

Oh ya! Instant Pot, love, breakfast.

That's it!!

Who knew you could make breakfast in the Instant Pot?

Well, obviously a few people knew. Did you?

I realized it when I saw my friend Jenn, from Peas and Crayons, post this amazing recipe for this Instant Pot Frittata Breakfast Casserole.

Holy Yum people!! I think I just about licked the screen. I know I defintely drooled on my keyboard!

So that got my little mind wandering, which can be a dangerous thing, it is small and should not be out on its own!

My first thought went directly to one of the things I love the most, Caprese ANYTHING. I have made Roasted Garlic Caprese Style Flatbread Pizza, Caprese Stuffed Chicken Breasts, One Pot Chicken Caprese Pasta, Caprese Meatball Subs, and Open Face Chicken Caprese Sandwiches, just to name a few.

Why not Caprese in a breakfast form?

My answer?

Why the hell not!

So I gathered my goodies and away I went.

I did have to buy a pan that would fit into my Instant Pot at Home Goods, but if you don't have a Home Goods, or just don't want to go out, you can get one on Amazon here.

Also, if you don't already have one, this is the Instant Pot I have. I bought the 7 in 1 because you can make yogurt in it.

Did you hear that?

YOU.CAN.MAKE.YOGURT!

Mind 💣

We go through a shit-ton of yogurt here so that was a total win in my mind!

But back to this gorgeous frittata.

I big ol' puffy heart it!

If I am being honest here, I tested this recipe the first time when I was alone and ate half of the frittata on my own 🤫

I have tried it several different ways.

I have used the mini mozzarella balls, and also just cubed some fresh mozzarella cheese.

If you like your cheese to stay in one place, the balls are the way to go, but if you want it a little more "melty" go with the cubed.

I have cut my grape tomatoes in half, and also put them in whole.

If you cut them they add more water to the casserole so it might have to cook longer.

I thought I would want them halved but ended up preferring them whole.

It also fits into my low-carb diet so that makes me even happier.

So jump on the happiness bandwagon with me people!

Trust me it is NOT a fad 😉

Yield: 4 servings

Instant Pot Caprese Frittata

Call it a casserole, a crustless quiche, a frittata, or whatever you want to call it, this delicious dish is sure to be a hit for breakfast, brunch, or even dinner!!
prep time: 10 minscook time: 12 minstotal time: 22 mins

ingredients:


  • Olive oil spray, or butter
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced or grated
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, plus more for garnish if wanted
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, cut chiffonade, plus more for garnish if wanted
  • 4 ounces mini mozzarella balls, or 4 ounces of fresh mozzarella cut into cubes.
  • 1 cup water
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese.

instructions


  1. Spray your pan with olive oil spray, or coat with butter. Make sure it is very well covered to avoid the eggs sticking.
  2. Cut a circle of parchment paper to line the bottom of the dish for easy removal. *See Notes
  3. In a large bowl, crack your eggs, add the heavy cream, salt, pepper, and garlic. Using an electric mixer, or a whisk, beat the egg mixture until the yolk and whites are fully combined.
  4. Place the tomatoes and mozzarella in the pan and pour the egg mixture over them. Feel free to move the tomatoes and cheese around to make sure they are evenly spaced out in the frittata.
  5. Pour the water into the bottom of your Instant Pot.
  6. Put the pan on the Instant Pot rack/trivet and carefully lower it into the Instant Pot with the handles. If your trivet does not have handles, you can make a handle with folded aluminum foil.
  7. Lock the lid.
  8. Set your Instant Pot to 12 minutes high pressure making sure vent is in the sealed position.
  9. Once it beeps, allow a natural pressure release for 10 minutes before unlocking the lid.
  10. Open the lid and pat the top of the frittata dry with a paper towel if needed.

  11. Run a knife along the side to release the frittata, then allow it to cool slightly before turning it over onto a plate.
  12. Top with grated Parmesan cheese, more chopped tomatoes, and more basil if wanted.

NOTES:

Trace around the bottom of the pan to get the size of the parchement paper circle you need to put into the bottom of the pan. Trust me, it is well worth the time!
