If you’re wondering what to serve with your frittata, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 13 of the most popular side dishes for a frittata.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best dishes to serve with frittata are hash browns, cheese and bacon muffins, baked beans, or a tossed green salad. I also really like fried potatoes and bacon, kale crisps, and sliced avocado. Frittata and coleslaw makes a great lunch option.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
In my household, you can’t serve a frittata without hash browns.
The crunchy, salty potato goodness is just what your brunch needs to make it complete.
Plus a dipping sauce of course. Ketchup is a classic, but if you want something a little different I recommend a salsa verde. It’s delicious!
Check out this quick recipe from lazy cat kitchen if you want to make your own hash browns.
Tossed green salad
This simple tossed green salad can be whipped up in no time at all, so it’s a great last-minute addition to your frittata.
It’s light, it’s healthy, and it’s an easy way to get some greens on your plate.
The lettuce is fresh and crisp, the tomatoes bring sweetness, and the cucumbers add crunch.
Try this recipe from le creme dela crumb for your next salad.
Serving your frittata for a special occasion? Or maybe you just feel like celebrating.
Make everyone mimosas!
They’re exciting, refreshing, and will look great on the table.
Not sure about the ratios? Check out this recipe from the spruce eats. Or just free pour, I won’t tell anyone.
Psst… for a kid-friendly mimosa use soda water instead of champagne.
Cheese and bacon muffins
Muffins are one of my favorite foods to eat in the morning.
And they make a great on-the-go finger food just like frittatas.
My go-to recipe for savory muffins are these cheese and bacon ones (because who doesn’t love cheese and bacon). But you can be creative here.
I also really like zucchini muffins.
Want a dessert? Blueberry muffins are a real treat.
Pico de gallo
Are you looking for a tasty topping for your frittata?
Pico de gallo is a vibrant salsa made from tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime juice (and jalapenos if you want some spice).
The tangy flavors will help brighten up your breakfast and get you ready for a busy day ahead.
And this pico de gallo only takes 15 minutes to throw together.
Baked beans provide the perfect base for a rich, saucy breakfast.
And you can use your frittata to mop up all the tasty bean juice.
You could opt for canned beans, but they’re nowhere near as good as homemade baked beans.
These baked beans have molasses, BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard in the recipe so you can imagine how much depth of flavor they have.
Pro tip: add some hash browns to the plate for a satisfying meal.
Fried potatoes and bacon
Fried potatoes and bacon are the ultimate comfort food.
I love how the crispy potatoes contrast with the soft texture of a frittata.
And the fact they’re cooked in bacon fat takes the flavor to a whole new level of yumminess.
This simple recipe from my life cookbook can be made in under 30 minutes from start to finish.
It’s perfect for an indulgent weekend breakfast or brunch.
Your frittata might already have tomatoes in it, but these roast tomatoes are too sweet to resist.
They look great on the plate, and it’s as easy as popping some tomatoes in the oven.
I like to use on-the-vine tomatoes because it adds a little sophistication to the meal.
Spend with pennies has a quick recipe for roasted tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese. YUM!
Creamy spinach dip
You could serve sauteed spinach with your frittata, but that’s a bit boring.
Creamy spinach dip is a much better idea, and a sneaky way to get some vegetables on everyone’s plate.
Dip the frittata into the spinach and let all the buttery goodness come together.
This creamy spinach dip will definitely be a crowd-pleaser!
Avocado can be served in all sorts of ways, but I think plain and simple sliced avocado is severely under-rated.
It takes no time to prepare, and you still get all the smooth creaminess you get from mashed avocado.
If you’re really hungry, place the avocado on top of an English muffin or a big slice of crunchy sourdough.
Follow this tutorial to get perfect-looking sliced avocado (it’s trickier than it looks).
Salt and vinegar kale chips
Itching for crunchy potato chips?
These healthy kale chips will curb your cravings for something crunchy and crispy.
Kale chips have far fewer calories and less fat than your typical potato chips.
Plus, the classic salt and vinegar flavor combo will leave you licking your fingers.
Serve your frittata alongside a bowl of these salt and vinegar kale chips for a balanced, nourishing meal.
And if you have leftovers, I experimented to find out the best way to store your kale chips and keep them crunchy.
Creamy mushroom toast
I know what you’re thinking.
You’ve already thought of toast.
But I bet you weren’t planning on putting anything other than butter on your toast.
Follow Ayeh’s lead and spread a layer of ricotta on the toast, and then heap some mushrooms on the ricotta for a hit of umami flavor with your frittata breakfast.
Psst… if you want something simpler, try sprinkling some salt and pepper on your toast (thank me later.)
Frittata isn’t just for breakfast.
I like to eat it for lunch too with a big helping of coleslaw.
But instead of serving my coleslaw smothered in a heavy mayonnaise dressing, I use a lighter, vinegar-based dressing.
The lighter dressing lets the crunchiness from the veggies shine through, and means you can still taste everything in the frittata. Win-win!
This is my favorite coleslaw recipe.
