I’m not a cereal lover. Truth be told, I prefer to eat cereal as a snack, but find it unfulfilling as a breakfast food. At the rate my kids move, I’m pretty sure they burn through their cereal carbs before they get out the door in the morning.

I’d rather load my kids up with long-lasting energy from protein, but who has time to make bacon and eggs for breakfast every day? Not me!

Since my Instant Pot is my best friend when it comes to getting dinner on the table, I naturally turned to it to help me with my breakfast dilemma.

I’ve been experimenting with different egg dishes and today I’m sharing one of my first successes — Instant Pot Tomato Bacon Spinach Frittata.

I’ve written before about my love of BLT sandwiches, which inspired these BLT Appetizer Cups and the Instant Pot Tomato Bacon Spinach Frittata recipe I’m sharing with you today. If you like the classic flavors of a BLT, you’re going to love this dish!

How to Make Instant Pot Tomato Bacon Spinach Frittata

You only need a few minutes to throw this frittata together, then you can finish getting ready for the day while your Instant Pot does the rest of the work.

Step 1: Prepare Egg Mixture

First, you’ll whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, and the spices.

Step 2: Prepare Filling

Next, you’ll spray your 7-inch round pan with non-stick cooking spray and add chopped tomato, chopped bacon, and fresh spinach leaves.

For the bacon, you can buy pre-cooked, but I always bake a pound of bacon on weekends when I make our big Saturday breakfast. I line two cookie sheets with aluminum foil (to make clean up easier), lay the bacon out so that the pieces don’t overlap, then place in a COLD oven.

Turn the oven on and set the temperature to 400 degrees. Bake 18-22 minutes. My oven gets them to a perfect crisp in 20 minutes.

Step 3: Combine

Now, just pour the egg mixture over the tomato, bacon, and spinach.

Step 4: Cook

Place your metal rack/trivet in the bottom of your Instant Pot liner and add one and a half cups of water. Then, place the pan on the rack, secure the Instant Pot lid and make sure the valve is set to “sealing.”

Cook on high pressure (use either the “Manual” or “Pressure” button, depending on your model) for 15 minutes. Quick release the pressure when the timer beeps and carefully remove the pan from the Instant Pot once the pressure has fully released.

    • Sorry that I didn’t see this sooner Kristin. You can use milk instead of cream but the result will be less rich. To offset this, use 1 1/2 tablespoons of milk and 1 tablespoon butter.

  1. Made this thissmorning and it was very good. I used milk instead of cream and it came out great. I think next time I’ll use sausage instead of bacon just for variety. Maybe add a little cheddar also. Thank you for this recipe.

    I made this yesterday for Sunday Breakfast. I did cook (baked) the bacon prior to placing in recipe. Delicious!!! Fast!!! and I believe you could alter it to your taste. Cooked broccoli for spinach, Add some mushrooms or peppers for more color and change up seasonings.
