Broccoli and Potato Frittata Recipe

Broccoli and Potato Frittata Recipe {}

By Leigh Ann Dutton, Contributing Writer

Breakfast is an important part of our family’s day. I have two little boys who can eat as much as grown adults.

Often on play dates, I pray that no eating will be involved. It’s silly, but the amount of food my little munchkins can put down always blows our new friends’ minds. Family members sit and watch our children eat in utter amazement and wonder aloud where the food goes!

Keeping my boys fed is a challenge for me. Quite honestly? It’s one of the hardest parts of parenting for me right now.

Saying that out loud feels so silly. I’m sure there are harder parts of parenting, but right now, this is just where I’m at.

Anyway, back to breakfast. Because my family requires a lot of food throughout the day, I’m always on the lookout for super filling, nutrition-packed breakfast ideas.

One morning while doing the Whole 30 Challenge, I woke up in desperate need of something other than scrambled eggs, fried eggs, hard-boiled eggs, or … oh the amount of eggs we consumed on this challenge!

So I did something quite typical and created something that sounded good in my mind. And out came one of the most memorable breakfasts we’ve had to date.

The only complaint I received was that I didn’t make enough. Go figure!

My 1-year-old loved this frittata and ignored his fruit (usually his favorite) entirely. My 3-year-old said, “This is the best breakfast ever, Mom!”

Quite the accolades for a sleep deprived mama!

The best part? I didn’t have to feed them a single snack before lunch! This Broccoli and Potato Frittata kept my boys full and satisfied all morning. Score!

If you’re looking for a simple recipe that packs a bunch of nutrition to add to your breakfast recipe list, then add this one. You won’t regret it. It’s delicious, simple to make, and did I mention delicious? Just checking.

Broccoli and Potato Frittata Recipe


  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream (coconut cream works too)
  • 1/8 cup water
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • Parsley, to taste
  • 1 potato, shredded


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a 10-inch cast iron skillet, melt your coconut oil over medium-high heat.

Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute. You want to get that nice garlic aroma without burning the garlic.

Toss your broccoli into the pan and continue cooking for five minutes or until your broccoli is soft.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, water, salt and pepper, and turmeric. Stir in the shredded potato.

Once your broccoli has softened, pour the egg mixture into the hot pan. Give it a quick, gentle stir and sprinkle parsley lightly across the frittata.

Then, let it sit on the heat for two minutes or until the edges start to set.

Turn your burner off and pop the skillet into your preheated oven for 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked all the way through.

6 Cleansing Foods You Should Be Eating This Winter

Guest post by Lisa Grace Byrne, MPH Oh, winter! If you are living in the Northern hemisphere (particularly the areas where winter means cold), easing into the winter season with warmth and grace can feel a little challenging. Songs fill the airways touting that this is “the most wonderful time of the year!” and … while there is a lot of wonderful in winter, this is also a season that brings busier-than-usual schedules, excess sugar, heavier foods, and an increase in colds/flus. Of all the […]

Our family’s new addition {and why this was my best first trimester yet}

You’d think by number five I’d have learned how to announce this more creatively, but perhaps it’s that with each child, a smaller percentage of my brain seems to be left with full function. (I’m only half kidding on that.) So I’ll just come right out with it and tell you we’re excited to announce there’s a new little Langford on the way, set to arrive sometime in June 2015! As I said on my personal Facebook page: Kepler would like a baby brother. Johanna wants […]
