Never would have thought to try this in the pressure cooker, but glad I did. The texture was so incredibly even, it was unbelievable! I might have been heavy with the cream, but nobody complained. Was delicious hot and cold (snacking later). I used a springform to make cutting and serving easier and more presentable.

I am SO INTO making eggs in my pressure cooker. They come out custardy, fluffy, moist. Seriously totally different than a normal frittata. Add more fat (cream, yogurt, milk) if you want it custard-ier.

Made this when some friends dropped by early and unexpectedly. I had to whip something up and I made this recipe. It's easy and quick and tastes great. I'm going to make it again!

Delicious! I didn't use nutmeg, but I did add a little garlic and onion powder. I had no idea you could use a pan inside the pressure cooker. My cake pan worked perfect! I'm using the steamer basket more and more these days, it's so convenient.

Making a frittata has never been easier! I followed the recipe but added a little more cream which resulted in the perfect custardy texture, and not overcooked or sponge like (a common mistake). This is easily one of my favorite frittata recipes.

I chose to use feta cheese instead of Parmesan. I am sure it would be fine with Parmesan, but the feta really brought something to this dish! Loved the texture it added and the saltiness. Love it! Sliced leftovers and used them on sandwiches later. Versatile dish. Can imagine adding asparagus or bell pepper, but haven't yet. Gonna!

This was bland. Also, mine didn’t cook in 10 minutes. I had to run it through another 5 minute cycle. The texture was nice, and it was super easy and fast to prepare - hence the 3 stars. I will probably adapt to use with my best quiche recipes.

This was my second try. The first time I used the wrong pan and some of the filling leaked out. Today I tried it again. Neither my husband nor I liked it. He felt pity for me and ate two slices. I barely managed one. Did not like it at all. All those calories and no flavor at all. I used high quality ingredients, organic and I’m disappointed in wasting good stuff. Will never make this again.

I've never had or made a frittata before...this was awesome! I used plain Greek Yogurt instead of whipping cream & also used Feta Cheese ~ YUM!! I'm a rookie with my Mealthy Pot and it took a bit to figure out that I had to hit Pressure Cook twice to get the "Pressure Cook Temp" to High, so as to cook with high temp & high pressure.

Frittatas, honestly it’s not for everyone.

Delicious. It was not done after 10 minutes so I had to put it back in for longer. I figured out why it wasn’t done. I had my temp set at normal. You have to make sure that the temperature is on high. The directions say to set the pressure to high but say nothing about the temp. The only time you see what the temp is supposed to be set to is if you closely watch the video. I think future editions of the recipe should explicitly state temp as well. I added 1/2 cup of feta to the recipe and it was delicious. Consistency is great. I will use this as my go to frittata recipe and experiment by adding other ingredients.

This is my third time to make it. I’m doing the Whole30 plan this time, so I left out the cheese, substituted the heavy part of coconut milk for cream and added some peppers. Delish!

Cassandra Martin says:

This turned out absolutely amazing. I added onion to the recipe and it turned out great. Super easy to make as well which is a plus

I enjoyed this recipe a lot. I thought it was a little bland I used garlic and onion powder in place of nutmeg. Next time I will use diced onions and minced garlic, and maybe some sliced mushrooms. If that is still bland the time after that I will toss in a dash or two of Tabasco.

Sarah M says:

I really liked this a lot. I used half and half instead of heavy cream because I had it in hand. Made a rookie mistake of not using cooking spray. Duh. So everything is soaking now. I diced up tomatoes to serve on top.

Jennifer Conlan says:

It was delicious, although I should have read the other reviews about the cooking time. I did not have my IP set correctly to the high temp and high pressure. It took 3 more 10 min cycles to finish cooking.

Cindi Nichols says:

Haven’t actually tried it yet, but was wondering how, after cooking the egg it would be to brown in crisp lid ?

Nutmeg was too much, spices all settled to the bottom and all spinach floated to the top

It was our easy, yummy & fast to prepare breakfast my 2yr old boy loved it. After it was done, we put in the oven & broiled for a minute.
