Hash Brown Frittata


Hash Brown Frittata is a very convenient and easy recipe just baked in the oven; what could be simpler?

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed and drained
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Colby cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add red bell pepper and potatoes; cook and stir until heated, about 4-5 minutes longer. Remove from heat.

In large bowl, combine eggs, cream, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and thyme and beat well. Spread the butter in a 9" x 13" glass baking dish. Add the vegetable mixture, then pour eggs over all.

Bake for 30 minutes or until just barely set. Then top with Colby and mozzarella cheeses and bake for 10-15 minutes longer or until cheeses are melting and begin to brown. Let stand for 3 minutes, then cut into squares to serve.
