Frittata or what we like to call Fri-Tot-Ta is a main dish that is made in one pan. I just love the ease of the recipe and the ease of cleanup too!
I am sure there have been other bloggers who have created a recipe like this, but I have not seen it. Therefore, in my head, I am the first and therefore the best! As you read this recipe and drool over it, please know that I may post affiliate links in the article.
Not too long ago, I had decided I wanted to make a frittata with potatoes, but didn’t feel like standing in front of the sink peeling potatoes. I decided I would cook something else for dinner and while looking around for inspiration, I saw Tater Tots (I just love those little guys). Fri-Tot-Ta was created! We love it.
A light bulb came on and I began to create the recipe. The recipe I am sharing with you today has bacon in it. You can easily leave the bacon out for a Meatless Monday dinner.
We will often use leftover vegetables in our frittata also. Being able to change this recipe up so much is one of the reasons I love it.
I use an iron skillet to make my Fri-Tot-Ta in. I am hoping to one day have a Le Crueuset skillet one day (hint – hint), but right now, I love using my iron skillet.
Cast iron skillets conduct heat so well and easily go from the stove top to the oven. They will last forever too.
Lodge brand is the best skillet out there as far as I am concerned. You can pick one up at Amazon that comes pre-seasoned. It will save you the steps of seasoning it when you get it.
I purchased my 9 inch skillet, along with a larger and smaller one, at a yard sale for $1.50. The lady said she didn’t know if I would enjoy them or not – she couldn’t get them clean. She had forgotten to season them! I have had them for years now and love them.

Tater Tot Frittata is a great breakfast, dinner or lunch. Easy to make and so yummy. A new family favorite.

In an oven safe skillet, add the olive oil and rub it around till all sides are coated. Add the Tater Tots and cook according to the directions on the package.
When the tots are finished cooking, top with 1 cup of the grated cheese, the green onions (reserve 1 tablespoon for toppinand the bacon (reserve 1 tablespoon for topping)
Pour the beaten eggs on top of the tater tots and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the eggs are almost set. (Timing on this will depend on the size of the pan and the deepness of the mixture)
When the eggs are almost set, top with the rest of the cheese and bacon and place under the broiler for another 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle with the reserved green onion when serving.
