Easy Low-Carb Instant Pot Frittata

This is by far the easiest way to make a frittata! This Instant Pot Frittata is super light and fluffy, great for a crowd, and super versatile if you’d like to switch up the fillings. You could add cooked sausage or bacon, chorizo would be great here too, or even diced ham.

We went with a Southwestern theme topping it off with jalapeños, sour cream, and avocado! This is also a great recipe for batch cooking as this keto frittata keeps really well in the refrigerator, just make it on Sunday to have on hand all week!

Be sure to use a heat proof ceramic baking dish since we’re cooking with pressure here. You could also use a metal cake pan but I’d avoid glass.
