This Instant Pot Mushroom and Swiss Frittata is an awesome breakfast recipe. It’s super easy to make and is ready in about half an hour.
I don’t have time in the morning to whip up elaborate breakfast dishes for my family. That being said, I also don’t like to send my kids out the door with only cereal in their stomachs to sustain them to lunch.
That’s why I’m a big fan of breakfast casseroles and simple frittatas. They make it easy to feed my whole family a hearty breakfast with minimum effort.
Since my Instant Pot is my go-to appliance for easy cooking, I turned to it for help with breakfast. I started with an Instant Pot Tomato Bacon Spinach Frittata inspired by my love of BLTs.
Still in sandwich mode, I thought of my favorite burger when I decided to work up another recipe. That’s how I ended up with this Instant Pot Mushroom and Swiss Frittata.
I loved how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it too!

Quick release the pressure when the timer beeps and carefully remove the pan from the Instant Pot once the pressure has fully released.
