Slow Cooker Ham and Swiss Frittata

Makes 6 servings

6 eggs, lightly beaten
Salt and Pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 or 3 mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
3/4 cup - 1 cup cubed ham
1 small tomato, diced
Bacon bits, optional
Salsa, optional

1.  In an oven-safe dish that fits in a large slow cooker, combine the eggs, garlic, mushrooms, 1/2 cup of Swiss, ham and tomato.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Stir until combined.
2.  Sprinkle the rest of the Swiss cheese on top.  Sprinkle with bacon bits, if desired.
3.  Place dish inside slow cooker.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 90 minutes to 2 hours.
4.  Slice and serve with salsa

Because I had so much success with this other frittata I wanted to try another version.  I loved the ham and Swiss combo.  My kids loved this as well.  This was our dinner but you could definitely make it for breakfast or brunch too.  4 stars.


  1. What kind of dish works well for an oval 5-6 quart crock pot?

  2. thanks for asking...I used a 1.6 liter (about 1.7 quart) dish. It is corningware.

  3. Why do you put a dish inside the crock pot? It can't just be in the crockpot? Sounds delicious!

  4. The dish just makes it easier to get out and slice and make pretty :) If you don't care about that then you can for sure just cook it straight in your slow cooker. It will cook faster though so watch the time.

  5. Great. Thank you, Karen! Love your blog!

  6. Do you need to put a small amount of water into the bottom of the crockpot or is it ok to leave it dry?

  7. it's okay to leave it dry!

  8. Yum! What a beautiful dish! So perfect for breakfast! I just love it!!

  9. Oh, man, what a delicious way to start the day! So cheesy and wonderful!!

  10. I would never have thought of making a frittata in the slowcooker. That's brilliant!

  11. I love frittatas and I really love that you made one in the slow cooker!

  12. Great way to start off any morning with all those yummy ingredients. Love a frittata... and it's even better in the slow cooker. :) Great to share crocktoberfest week with you. :)
