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.

Good morning!
I don't have an instapot, would it be possible to make in the oven?
In that case ... howmany degrees C° and for how long (covered or not?)

Hi Sandra, you could definitely use an oven - here are instructions for oven baking: Keto Mexican Kale Frittata (about the same temperature and time although that depends on the shape of the baking dish. The smaller & deeper the baking dish, the longer the cooking time.

I don't have an instapot, but I do have a new airfryer.. do you think it would also work?

I'd love to know that too because I never used one! It will definitely work as a tray bake/ oven baked frittata 😊

I have a small instant pot about a 3 qt , can I halved the recipe in half to make? For example:
4 eggs instead of 8?   Thanks. Love your website and I was on keto last year for 8 months than slacked off during the holiday . I vowed to not to that again !  I want it to be my permament lifestyle change.

Thank you Stacey, that's a great approach. Don't punish yourself for that, it's always about the "long term" and we are all allowed to have cheat days from time to time 😊 You could either make a taller fritatta (full recipe) or halve the recipe. The eggs should cook through in either case.

My Instant Pot does not have a manual button. Which setting should I choose ?

Which Instant Pot do you have? Without that I don't know which setting you have available 😊

What is it that you have lined on the bottom of the ceramic dish?

That's a greaseproof baking (cake) liner.
