Individual egg frittatas packed with veggies and topped with cheddar cheese make a perfectly-portioned breakfast! The Instant Pot does most of the work for you, and produces perfectly-cooked, tender frittatas. You can enjoy them right away, or make them ahead of time for weekday breakfasts on the go.

Trying to cut carbs? Instead of corn, use any other nonstarchy vegetable you have on hand. Frittatas are a great way to use up leftover veggies before they go bad.
