Meat Lovers Frittata

Use up all the camp leftovers with this all-in-one skillet recipe loaded with hearty potatoes, cheese, veggies, meats, and eggs!


1 tablespoon cooking oil
6 eggs
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1½ cup leftover meat, sliced into bite-sized pieces
¼ cup grape tomatoes, sliced
2 scallions, chopped
Roasted peppers
1½ cup Idaho® russet potatoes, washed, peeled and cut into ½” cubes
6 ounces cheese
Salt and pepper
Fresh arugula and sliced tomatoes for garnish


  1. Preheat your cast-iron skillet over a camp stove to medium heat. You should be able to feel the heat evenly radiating from the skillet while safely holding your hand above the surface.
  2. Add the oil and swirl to coat the pan.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the heavy cream.
  4. Add the leftover meat, tomatoes, scallions, peppers, and potatoes to the bowl and stir.
  5. Pour the mixture into the hot skillet and top with the cheese.
  6. Allow the eggs to set a few moments before carefully with a rubber spatula, scraping the eggs from the center of the pan and stirring a bit, and then pushing the eggs in towards the center.
  7. Repeat this step a few times around the edges to prevent sticking to the bottom and cooking quickly in one spot.
  8. Cover the frittata with foil and allow to cook through, about 10-15 minutes longer, shimmying the pan occasionally and rotating it so that the heat is evenly distributed.
  9. The frittata is done when the eggs have set. Remove from heat.
  10. Serve hot with fresh arugula and sliced tomatoes over the top.



  • Cooking the frittata slowly is important on a camp stove. 
  • A well-seasoned cast-iron pan will go a long way for this recipe. The better used and seasoned it is, the more naturally non-stick it is, making your frittata slide out with ease.  
  • This recipe calls for leftover meat. I used a variety of taco meat, ham, and cooked sausages from recipes throughout the week camping trip. As long as the meat equals 1½ cup portion, any variety of leftovers will do.
