This easy frittata slow cooker recipe uses vegetables, eggs, cheese and a few seasonings. It’s simple yet flavorful and best, it’s ready in just an hour or so
Thank you Rose, Theslowcookinghousewife; her Slow Cooker Veggie Frittata recipe inspired this one. I’ve made breakfast casseroles plenty of times in my slow cooker but this was my first time making a frittata. Um…where have I been?!? When it comes to convenience AND flavor, this recipe is at the top of the list. It was so easy to throw together and the flavors were amazing. Whatever vegetables you have in your produce drawer, pull them out, chop them up, cook them and thrown them in the slow cooker. If you’re crunched for time – you don’t even have to cook the vegetables first. Just toss them in. I kept my version vegetarian but of course you can add cooked bacon or sausage. For the seasoning, I used Flavor God’s Garlic Herb & Himalayan salt. If you don’t have Flavor God, I suggest you use Rose’s recipe which uses the following seasonings: 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. For the cheese, I used mozzarella cheese because…that’s what I had. Be sure to spray the slow cooker generously with cooking spray before you add any ingredients.
A few notes about this recipe: I used 6 eggs and a 2-quart slow cooker. You can easily double or triple this by multiplying the ingredients accordingly. This cooks very fast. Mine was done in just over an hour on HIGH. Lastly, be prepared for your house to smell amazing. I know mine did.
