How To: Leftovers Breakfast Frittata

This morning, I'm excited to share with you my simple recipe for a breakfast frittata that will put your leftovers to good use!

I hate to see food sit in the fridge and go to waste~ so this is the perfect way to be resourceful and get the most out of your ingredients.  It will also save you on cash & extra cooking time in the kitchen!

This dish comes together in less than 20 minutes, and is as pretty as it is tasty!

I've written this recipe the way I would make it:  Paleo-friendly & workable for a Whole30.  However, do feel free to change it up to fit your family's taste buds!  You can add cheese or use whole dairy milk instead of coconut milk.  Just treat this as a guide, and get creative!

Enjoy this for brunch with friends, Saturday morning breakfast with your kids, or as a "meal prep" dish to portion for the week!  The options are endless...


  • 1-2 cups leftover meat, diced
  • 1 cup hash brown potatoes
  • 1 cup mixed veggies
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tsp spices*
  • 2 Tbsp fat of choice


  • large oven-safe skillet
  • medium mixing bowl


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, and spices.
  3. On the stovetop, heat the cooking fat in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat.  
  4. Sauté the hash browns & veggies until tender, then stir in the diced meat.
  5. Pour the whisked eggs over top, and do not stir.  Allow the eggs to cook on the stove for 2 minutes, then transfer to the oven.
  6. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the eggs are "set" (don't jiggle if you shake the pan).
  7. Slice & serve hot with garnish of choice!


  • Any leftover meats will work!  Try ham, tri-tip, steak, or sausage.
  • For veggies, you can stick to something simple like spinach or broccoli, or stir in whatever leftover vegetable you have on hand.  Try butternut squash, bell peppers, mushrooms, or asparagus.
  • I like using an all-purpose spice blend like "Paleo Powder", or a mix of dried onion, garlic powder, and salt & pepper.
  • This is a simple recipe, that you can easily dress up with a fancy sauce, pretty herb garnish, or slices of avocado.  Get creative!
