One of the awesome things about the Instant Pot is that it cooks food perfectly and locks in the flavor. When it comes to frittatas, the Instant Pot cooks them quicker than a baked frittata and comes out perfectly every single time.

I absolutely LOVE the Instant Pot. I even have two of them! Why have two Instant Pots? Glad you asked! Because it can help you get an entire meal done in no time, the prep time is minimal and the cooking time is completely hands-off. There’s also the bonus of making the main meal and a dessert at the same time! Yes, you can make lots of different desserts in the Instant Pot!

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, I highly recommend them. They will make your life so much easier when it comes to home cooking. They truly are a game-changer in the kitchen (and probably my favorite kitchen tool).

Don’t have an Instant Pot or don’t know what it is? You can find them on Amazon here. Jessica and Orleatha also recorded a How to Use Your Instant Pot video that you can watch below.

Frittatas are protein-packed and super easy to make!

They’re packed with nutrient-dense eggs and filled with lots of healthy ingredients. The wonderful thing about them is they’re really so versatile and you can load them up with whatever you want. Or, you can stick to some yummy classics like bacon and broccoli.

Frittatas are so wonderful for main meals, a quick snack, lunches, and even breakfast on-the-go when you make it ahead of time. I love to make them the night before I want to eat it and then it’s ready for me in the morning.

I have found this to be such a lifesaver on mornings when I have very little time. I also like to make them ahead of time so my husband can have a good meal before heading out the door. Having a protein-rich, healthy frittata already made and ready is so helpful!

Easy Instant Pot Bacon Broccoli Frittata :: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 47 minutes

This delicious Easy InstantPot Bacon Broccoli Frittata is packed full of bacon and broccoli goodness, fragrant herbs and creamy cheddar cheese. 


  • 2 tbsp grass-fed butter or ghee
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves, grated or finely minced
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets, cut into smaller bite-size pieces
  • 4 pastured eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (I use coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley - optional
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6-8 slices of pre-cooked crispy organic or pastured turkey bacon, crumbled - optional
  • 1 cup water


  1. Add healthy fat of choice to the Instant Pot and press “Sauté”. Once the fat has melted, add the onion and garlic, sautéing for 7 minutes until lightly caramelized. Add the broccoli and sauté for another 4 minutes. Press the “Keep Warm/Cancel” button.
  2. Grease 1 ½ quart casserole dish (I use one with a glass lid) that fits inside the Instant Pot with butter, set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and milk together until the eggs are fully incorporated. Add the sea salt, lemon zest, parsley, and thyme, gently stirring to fully combine. Add the cheddar cheese, crumbled crispy bacon and the onion-garlic-broccoli mixture, stirring to combine. Pour the mixture into a greased casserole dish. Place the glass lid on top of the casserole dish. Place the Instant Pot trivet inside the Instant Pot. Pour 1 cup of water into the Instant Pot. Carefully add the covered casserole dish to the Instant Pot on top of the trivet. Place the lid on the Instant Pot making sure the steam release valve is sealed. Press “Manual” setting and “-“ to decrease to 23 minutes.
  4. When the Instant Pot is done and beeps, press “Keep Warm/Cancel”. Allow the Instant Pot to naturally pressure release for 10 minutes. Using an oven mitt, “quick release”/open the steam release valve. When the steam venting stops and the silver dial drops, carefully open the lid.
  5. Carefully remove the casserole dish from the Instant Pot and remove the lid.
  6. Serve hot or warm.


  • You will need a 1 ½ quart casserole dish or a 6 cup heat-safe glass or stainless steel bowl that fits in the Instant Pot. You will also need a lid. I use a casserole dish that comes with a glass lid. If you don’t have a lid for your dish or bowl, you can place a piece of parchment paper over the top, then cover and secure it with foil.
  • For a Vegetarian Option, omit the bacon.

Hey AIP (and even non-AIP) Friends! Listen Up! It’s Finally Time for “FAST” Food on the AIP!

Yes, you read that right. FAST FOOD on the AIP! How is that even possible you ask? Well, I’ll tell you:

The Instant Pot!

Yes, this small kitchen appliance will take your healing autoimmune protocol meals to a whole new level of deliciousness and simplicity. You’ll be preparing gourmet, restaurant-style dishes in the comfort of your own home, easily and quickly.

I know, it sounds too good to be true, but I assure you, it’s not. And listen, while this eBook was created for our AIP friends, everyone will LOVE the nourishing, real food recipes in this book, regardless of your eating style.

I’ve done the AIP twice in my life, once for 6 months and then the second time for about 18 months. Both times I found myself struggling with the amount of time it took to prepare my food. And, because our food choices are limited, especially during the initial healing phase, I started to get really bored and stuck in a rut with food.

That is why I am so passionate about The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook that myself and 36 other experienced AIP bloggers and practitioners have put together just for you. We created this resource as a way to help you alleviate the burden of time and energy that comes with cooking AIP meals from scratch.

This is the first digital eBook written specifically for the AIP community using the Instant Pot. This book:

  • Focuses on the pressure cooker function, creating fast and delicious meals. Are you nervous about using a pressure cooker? No worries. There’s a tutorial in the front of the e-cookbook.
  • Features over 140 recipes, including Broths, Sauces/Condiments, Vegetables, Poultry, Meat, Seafood, Organ Meat, and Dessert.
  • Special diet modifications: Over half the recipes in this e-cookbook can be easily modified for Low-FODMAP, GAPS/SCD and Coconut-Free diets. (Charts are included at the back of the book.)
  • Packed with flavor with such diverse recipes as: Bone Broth (of course), Cranberry BBQ Sauce, Marinara Sauce, Cauli-fredo Sauce, Bacon Orange Cherry Jam, “Baked” Sweet Potatoes, Cauliflower Rice, Artichokes with Lemon Tarragon Dipping Sauce, Smothered Okra, Creamy Kabocha Squash Soup, Fall Off the Bone Whole Chicken, Mole Chicken with Bluecumber Salsa, Lemongrass and Ginger Chicken Zoodle Soup, Stuffed Acorn Squash, Turkey and Gravy, Speedy Chili, Teriyaki Garlic Beef, Ukrainian Borscht, Sticky Pork Short Ribs, Pork Vindaloo, Lamb and Apricot Curry, Simple French Navarin Lamb Stew, Chicken Liver Pâté, Steak and Kidney Stew, Tongue Tacos, Jambalaya, Steamed Crab, Leek and Shrimp Risotto, Salmon and Sweet Potato Chowder, Poached Pears, “Chocolate” Cake, Pina Colada Tapioca Pudding, Mini Pumpkin Pies, and over 100 other fabulous recipes!
  • Written by 37 AIP bloggers who have used the paleo autoimmune protocol to improve their own health. The result is a book far better than any one person could have created alone.

It’s time to stop using all of your precious time and energy slaving away in the kitchen. Eating real food can be time-consuming enough, but adding the AIP on top of it can lead to even more work.

Now you can FINALLY enjoy “fast” food on your healing protocol. Less time, less stress, more flavor. You deserve it. Learn more about the Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook and how to download your copy here (or just click on the image below).
