This baked frittata recipe is a great dinner or breakfast option. It’s packed with flavour and so easy to make! The oven-baked frittata can be made using any ingredients you have on hand, such as tomato, bacon or feta cheese for a savoury taste that will leave you wanting more.

Just as enjoyable served hot for dinner with salad or rice as it is served cold in lunch boxes or an after school snack.


This easy baked frittata recipe is one that is never the same any two times I make it because it’s the perfect recipe for using up leftovers or making use of whatever ingredients you have on hand. So long as you have the key ingredients – eggs, cheese, milk and seasoning. Beyond that, you can make it with almost anything!

My favourite combination of ingredients and the ones that I am sharing with this easy frittata recipe are bacon, cherry tomatoes and feta cheese. The flavours work so well together for any time of the day and it really could not be easier to make!

TIP: Frittata is the perfect recipe for using up leftovers such as roast vegetables, leftover rotisserie chicken or pulled pork, or any deli meats and cheese you have that are nearing their use-by date.

To make an oven-baked frittata, you will need a large baking dish. This recipe is suited to large families or meal prep when you want leftovers for lunches and it will serve 8. If you only have a small baking dish, you can half the quantities, or split your ingredients across two baking dishes instead.

What To Serve With Frittata

Frittata is hearty enough to be a filling main meal, yet light enough to be enjoyed for lunch or breakfast as well. This particular recipe with bacon and tomatoes make for a great breakfast frittata and an easier and healthier alternative to bacon and eggs!

If you are looking for ideas on what to serve with frittata for dinner or lunch, it pairs perfectly with a light garden salad or any leafy green salads during the summer months. For a winter warmer side dish, pair your frittata with fries, roast veggies or with a soup entree.

Here are some more ideas on what to serve with frittata:

Frittata Recipe Alternatives

There are so many frittata recipes, making this one of the most flexible recipes to have in your menu rotation. Here are some of my favourite baked frittata variations:

  • Tomato, spinnach and sweet potato
  • Mixed vegetable (sweet potato, zucchini, onion)
  • Ham and cheese
  • Olive, basil and tomato

As mentioned above though, anything goes really! If there are flavour combinations you like, why not experiment with your leftovers and create your own flavour burst!

Storing Frittata

Once cooled, slice up your frittata into squares and keep it sealed in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

You can also freeze your frittata for up to 2 months in an airtight container or in individual freezer bags, which are great for work or school lunches, or last-minute breakfast on the run. You can allow to defrost and serve cold or reheat in the microwave until hot.

TIP: Make sure you do wait until your frittata is fully cooled before putting it in the fridge or freezer though, otherwise it will have excess condensation in the container, resulting in extra moisture when reheating or defrosting.


Can I halve the ingredients?

Yes, if you halve the ingredients for this recipe you will get a frittata that serves approximately 4 people instead of 8. You may need to adjust your cooking times slightly to ensure it does not overcook and use a smaller square baking dish instead.

Can I substitute the ingredients?

YES! You can substitute almost everything in this recipe with the exception of eggs and milk. Everything else can be switched out for what you have already or for ingredients that you prefer, such as swap feta for grated cheddar or bacon for chicken etc.

Can I serve frittata cold?

Yes, frittata can be served warm or cold. It tastes great either way!
