Slow Cooker Vegetable Three Cheese Frittata

Christmas is almost here and I cannot think of anything better then having such a simple and healthy dish like this to eat over the holidays.

This recipe has everything you need to get your morning started.  You have your eggs for protein, your cheeses for dairy, and your spices to kick up it a notch.  We love it because it is the perfect way to use up left over vegetables before they even have a chance to go bad.

Have some leftover broccoli?  Add it in there.  Have an onion you need to use up?  Toss that in as well.  Basically any type of veggie will work in this recipe. This dish is a veggie-lovers dream come true….in the slow cooker. icon smile Slow Cooker Week, Day 4: Slow Cooker Veggie Three Cheese Frittata

You can add meat if you want, however, my family thinks it tastes just fine without it.

Another added bonus…..it will make your house smell delightful.  Don’t be surprised if your neighbors start knocking on the door to ask what’s cooking in your kitchen. icon smile Slow Cooker Week, Day 4: Slow Cooker Veggie Three Cheese Frittata

Complete slow cooker nirvana….yummmm!

  6. I may choose some different vegies, but think I’ll try this one. I’m pinning it.

  7. I know we’re only supposed to enter once for each day, but wanted to tell you it may not be a jackpot (instead it’s a crock pot) but this is fun. Thanks for sponsoring this. Please feel free to remove one of my two comments for this day.

  8. I have never tried this before, but it certainly looks scrumptious ! Looking forward to giving it a try.

  9. Breakfast? This would make a GREAT dinner…some crusty bread and wine to go with it – yum!

    My slow cooker just died, so this would be perfect!

  14. I hadn’t realized the total versatility of a slow cooker until I came across this site.

  15. this one looks good for those who are not in favor of “sweet” breakfasts.

    I love making “baked egg casseroles” with bread, diced potatoes and such, sometimes with scrambled eggs, sometimes with “whole” eggs on top.

  16. Tricia Valentine says:

    This recipe sounds amazing! I love anything with eggs and cheese. Can’t wait to try it.

  17. Have made something similar, but only on the stove top. Looking forward to just putting everything in the slow cooker and forgetting about it for a few hours. Thank you!

  18. I agree with Holly Darling, Too many ingredients. They overpower each other.

  19. I’ve never made this type of dish in a slow cooker…now I can just let it do the work! Nice!

  39. sharon bugar says:

    I love chive! I put it on all sorts of things, from pizza to subs, I have never made a Frittatta, but it just so happens I made a breakfast casserole last night for dinner and I really liked it. Will also love to give this one a try too I love trying out new recipes!

    Thanks for posting..

  47. Looks yummy! I love making breakfast casseroles, will add this one to my list.

  48. This sounds like a great meal for my family, would
    love to make it for them but I do not have a slow
    cooker. Winning this would be great.

  49. Sounds delicious. Can’t wait to try.

  60. Virginia Scott says:

    Sounds so delicious and couldn’t be any easier using the slow cooker.

  61. sounds awesome !!!!

  62. My husband always plants a big garden and in the fall he is looking for veggie recipes to use what the deer don’t eat! He said this looked good so I’m sure we’ll be trying it. I just like bacon in everything.

  63. I never would have thought to make something like this in my slow cooker! Thanks for the idea. In my kitchen, though, it seems every meal starts with me cutting up an onion, so I’d probably toss some diced onion into the skillet.

  64. I will be trying this one tomorrow. Sounds really good.

  65. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    My favourite ingredient to put in a breakfast casserole is bacon, eggs have to go in too of course. This sounds like a good recipe, I think that I might have added some bacon bits towards the end of the cooking time though.

  66. William Algie says:

    Can’t wait to try this recipe with my new Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker.

  67. There are so many things that can be prepared in a slow cooker

  68. so many things can be prepared in a slow cooker

  69. wow

  70. Cheryl Lloyd says:

    I’ve always wondered what you could do with zucchini and squash that wasn’t the ordinary bake or boil. I’ll have to try this.

  71. Don McKiernan says:

    this sounds soooo good

  72. My favorite thing to add to a breakfast casserole is…. CHEESE!! The amounts in this recipe do not disappoint! Can’t wait to try it!
